fedora login

Hi,

I am using fedora 10 on a 64bit machine.

I am trying to login to the root user using a terminal

[delbin@DNS collect]$ login
login: delbin
Password:

Session setup problem, abort.
[delbin@DNS collect]$


I am entering the correct username and password. However, I get the message that says: Session setup problem. atort.
I cannot login to the root user. Any ideas.

So it seems that you're not a root user (as the $ prompt and your OS prompt delbin@... suggests). Trying to login to a non-root user from a non-root user might cause this.

The solution to the problem is to use:

sudo su -

So that you will get a root shell as root. If there's a problem with root password you can reset it with a command such as this:

sudo passwd root

or

sudo passwd root -d

Cheers,
