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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change /etc/sysconfig/desktop to reflect KDE as Desktop and Display Manager
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.
