Cannot Login as root
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:14:44 EDT
Using gnome I cannot login as root....I can login my user account..
If I change the system to KDE I can login as root..So I know my password.
When I attempt to login as root, the screen flicker a split second and

Are there any solutions/fixes?
