    Cant login to Gnome as root!!! When logging in; Gnome starts up (I can see the desktop for about 5sec) then immediately loops back to the login screen. All other users are able to login normally. Please help!

    I don't know why you are having problems logging in as root, but I do know that it isn't a very good Idea to run Gnome or KDE as root.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
