Hallo

I did install SL5.5 i386 form the minimal live disk. I installed kdm and removed gdm.
Now root can't login at kdm.
root is able to start a normal KDE session by console login and run startx.

How do I enable root login for kdm?

http://www.ispexperts.com.np/?p=744 but it expects gdm. I suppose check and see if kdm has the same?

There is a file 'somewhere', where /usr/bin/gdm needs to be changed to /usr/bin/kdm...or something like that....google /usr/bin/gdm and find where it is.

Finaly I found it:

/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc

AllowRootLogin=true


SOLVED!
