Description Anthony 2005-07-21 00:46:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.1 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
When I changed /etc/sysconfig/desktop from DESKTOP="GNOME" to DESKTOP="KDE" 
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"...the KDE login manager hardly worked at all with my 
settings.  I had used this exact change in /etc/sysconfig/desktop before with 
my previous EL3 system and it worked flawlessly; however, with Fedora Core 4, 
when I would try to login as root, it would give an error messsage "no root 
logins allowed" and the background picture that I had selected did not show 
up.  It looked as if Gnome's display manager was fighting with KDE's, as the 
login page still had the look of GNOME. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change /etc/sysconfig/desktop to reflect KDE as Desktop and Display Manager 
2. Reboot 
3. try to login as root 

Actual Results:  error message "no root logins allowed" 

Expected Results:  login as root

Can you please provide more info on what the problem really is? The fact that   
GUI root logins are not allowed by default is not a bug, i reckon. It should  
be possible to customise this behaviour, even if not very advisable. For the 
rest of the report, i will need more details on what is the problem.

Closing due to lack of response from reporter.
