[suse-security] root login disabled for KDM (KDE 1.4.1)
Environment: 8.2 Suse Professional i386
(athlon kernel-source-2.4.20.SuSE-100 )
KDE 3.1.4 from SuSE supplementary directory
KDM RPM: kdebase3-kdm-3.1.4-34
/etc/passwd entry for root
The name Konqi as root was added with a PNG file for KDM to display, cute
little 64x64 pixel 3D dragon that he is.
I have remote login and shutdown disabled via "Control Center->System
Administration->Login Manager". System UID set to Below 0 and Above 65000.
"unhidden with every hidden but root (before I had Below 500 and had
"Selected only" which included "root").
Unable to login to root via KDM. Message is "root logins are not allowed".
Nothing in /var/log about the attempt but this:
Oct 1 06:33:34 cueball resmgr: accepted connection from user root
Oct 1 06:33:34 cueball resmgr: disconnect from root
# cat /etc/pam.d/login

session required pam_unix2.so none # debug or trace

I suspect something wrong with my PAM configuration. I did no editing
explicitly of these files. There is a /etc/pam.d/xdm but not a
"login root" from command line fails and goes away before an error can be
detected. "su - root" works.
Anyone know what file I have to tweak or what I am doing wrong?
TIA for any help. Regards.
I am unique and special, just like everyone else.
