im a linux nubie
i just instaled debian on one of my systems. and it will not let me login as root in the GUI. the login window is labled Gnome Desktop manger (if that means anything). when i first install debian brout me to a comand line login. at witch time i start X with the startx comand to see if it was configured right. after that i rebooted the comp to install a old hard drive, when it booted back up whent to the grafical login i mention before. and would not let me login as root. i like the idea of a graficle login and would like to use it or something simaler.
i need to get in to the GUI as root . is there a way to change the setings on that thing to alow it. if not is there somthing i can replace it with, or at lest stop it form loding so i can lode the GUI form the startx command.
