View Full Version : overwritten root user directory help!

27th August 2009, 02:06 PM

I did a fresh fedora install and have overwritten the root user directory ( /root) with a backup of a previous install. Now I cannot log on through the login screen with the root user password.

I can login su - as root on the command line with the password OK.

Any idea how I can fix this?

It is not broken, you dont need to log in as root. Just use su -. :)

hint: Search the forum for root login and you will most likely find a how-to to override this default and enable the root GUI login.
