ftg: "I thought the OP said that this feature was controlled by a
keyword in kdmrc. I assumed that that meant it was a feature supplied
as part of KDM. Are you saying that it was a MDV/MGA extension to start
with, and that it was withdrawn because we no longer wanted to support it ?"
As the OP, I'll comment that although the config was AllowRoot=true, in
/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc, all previous versions of Mandriva/Mageia
going back a number of years, right up to M2beta1 after online updates,
have supported setting this flag as allowing graphical root access to
gnome as well as kde environments. I hear the impassioned objections of
some of our leaders, and admit that the weight of expressed opinion in
this thread is against it, but a number of us have found the ability to
do this useful at times and I request its restoration.
I'd be happy as ftg commented that it still have the same red screen
warning etc etc as before - agree it makes sense not to be obvious.
