can't login as root...
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 25, '01 11:25:16AM

i've got a similar problem that might be related. on a fresh install of X, on a separate hard drive that was erased by the installer, i can do everything *but* login as an administrator to make system preference changes. some preferences, like Startup Disk, don't even let me try to login as an admin - the button is grey. for others, like Network, when i login, it never completes autentication. if i enter a bad password, it says it's bad. if i enter the right password, it just gets stuck authenticating.

any ideas?
