    Default Cannot Log In

    After seeing this in the FAQ, I decided to install KDM. Now I am unable to login. Upon booting, I am prompted for a user/pass. When entering the default root/toor combination, I am informed that I am not allowed to login as root. Since I have not created any additional accounts, I am kind of stuck at the moment.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    There is an easy fix and it would have taken maybe 30 seconds to search and find it.
    First select from the "sessions" menu log in from console or console login (forgot the exact name).
    Then you will be presented with a console. Log in.
    Next locate the kdmrc file and change the variable "AllowRootLogin".
