Fedora :: Can't Login Into The Root Account: It Returns Me Immediately To The Login Prompt?

Jan 27, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on a laptop. I changed the default shell on the root account to /bin/tcsh and changed the runlevel to 3 and then rebooted. Now I can't login into the root account: it returns me immediately to the login prompt and I can't see any error message (the screen is cleared).Why is this happening?Can I boot into some sort of safe mode so I can undo my changes to the /etc/inittab and /etc/passwd file?I tried booting with a Live CD with the intention of mounting the filesystem and making the changes, but the new filesystem is a LVM and it won't let me mount it (or I don't know how to mount a Logical Volume).

Debian :: Root Login Without Setting Root Password

May 14, 2015

I edited fstab to automatically mount my windows data partition on boot, but I screwed it up by not specifying the file system type, however that is not the problem, I was able to fix that easily. The problem was that when it failed to mount the partition, Debian automatically entered root and I guess that is to be expected in order for me to fix it, but I never configured a root password and it just gave me full root access without asking any password, not even my user password. I though that was strange so I set the root password and sure thing it asked me for the root password this time without automatically logging into root....

I then tried to lock the root account to see if it will ask me for a password or not, it did but of course I wasn't able to login as root because it was locked now and I was left with no way to access the system. I had to fix fstab from a live cd so that I can login normally as the user....

I didn't know what to search for or if that is the expected behavior if you don't set root password during installation, but it just seemed a bit strange to automatically enter root when you specifically disable root login during installation...

Ubuntu :: Cant Login As Root

May 22, 2010

when I booted the mouse was stuck & made the cube spin - other weird effects.I noticed this happens occasionally to a lesser extent but this time it rendered the system unusable.I managed to login somehow to older kernel.Turned off cube & problem gone but in the confusion I reverted xorg.config and now when I try to restore the backup it says I don't have permissions.Only root can restore the backup but I have no idea how to do this as its doesnt seem to be accepting the password.

Ubuntu Security :: Using Root As Daily Login?

Jan 22, 2011

It's my personal computer, no other users, no one else in the house. I'm behind a separate stand alone firewall (Checkpoint device). I'm the admin on my machine and I'm going to enter sudo, or login as root, every time I need it anyway.

There's no way that having to switch to root is going to make me stop and think about what I'm getting ready to do. In fact it's quite the opposite. If I'm in the midst of troubleshooting, I'm preparing to enter a command that I think is going to work, and I get "Permission denied"... The aggravation is more likely to reduce my logical thinking, and I'll immediately switch to root and type it anyway.

I DO understand the rational of setting users (even admin users) to a lower permission level. However I don't understand the lack of a command to make a user PERMANENTLY root equivilent. Switching back and forth is a waste of time. AND it means that I now have to deal with two home directories... /root and /home/user. Having to type sudo, or su to switch to root, does not protect my system. It only aggravates.

Debian :: Is Root Login To GUI Possible?

Aug 11, 2011

I can login as root into GUI (X, openbox). But, I found some persons said that with debian one cannot login as root to desktop (GUI).
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=68228#p387712
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=68228#p387737

I installed debian squeeze with linux and initrd.gz for i386 using internet. At the tasksel, I uncheck all the entries. After finishing the installation, I rebooted and installed xorg, iceweasel, iceweasel-l10n-ja, menu, menu-l10n, alsa, openbox, obconf, scim-anthy, pcmanfm, leafpad, sux, and so on. I know that root login to GUI is not so secure and should not be done.
