http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Can't seem to do it, wondering if anyone knows how? Normally there's something in sshd_config that can be switched to true or yes to allow root login but I can't see it in fedora 12. I can login via root at a terminal no problem, just not via ssh, I get access denied every time. Also, I need to login using password authentication. I've done: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=227169 but that's just for GUI which I don't really need since I rarely ever log into the GUI. I have also searched through here and mostly only found info such as above, how to enable root login for GUI, or billions of posts about how loging in as root is bad but I cannot find the answer to my question. DISCLAIMER: Please do not reply to this thread if all you can contribute is the question of why I need root or to put some message telling me I can do everything using su, etc, etc. Please only contribute if you can answer my question. A: My machine and a valid quesiton. B: Spirit of Linux is open, not restrictive. Thanks and have a great day. (HowTos)
