How to enable Root Login in Fedora 14?

If you upgrade your Fedora 13 Linux machine to Fedora 14, you must have noticed that it doesn't allow you to login through root.

There is a workaround to get root user to login through GNOME(if selected during the installation). Follow these steps:

1.Open the file /etc/pam.d/gdm in your favourite text editor. I preferrably use vim. Comment out the line:

#auth     required    pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet

2.Open the file

#sudo vim /etc/pam.d/gdm-password

3.Comment out this line too:

#auth       required    pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet

4. Save this file and login through "Other" supplying root login and password and you can easily login through root user.

Hope it Helps !!!!
