for some reason, my root login is disabled. When i open the root console
window on my desktop, it asks me for a password. I enter it, then the root
console window suddenly closes. However, if i press alt-ctrl-F1 and i login
as root and enter my password, it allows me to enter and use superuser
privilages. but on my desktop, all my root files are locked and i have no
superuser privilages. HELP!!!
