I am trying to do what another fellow has asked about, which is to open permissions to partitions owned by root.
these are ext3 partitions that need to be rw by all users.
in the process, I thought, I would just login as root and do that, yes, I recall that Ubuntu does things the sudo way but that's why I prefer to use PCLOS because I have no memory LOL.
Having said that.
I am using your newest version and I must admit, you guys have pretty much closed the gap, and then some. Kudos to you all even more so.
I just thought that maybe an old dog who brain left the station a long time ago in trying to remember commands for sudo, it seems the ability to log in as root is fundamentally there, just hidden or blocked due to preference of the sudo ways.
but apparently, I do believe it's it is using gdm, that's been prohibited.

This my current fstab, which I have no doubt is set incorrectly.
scold me if you must LOL, that's the true magic of the GUI, allowing the old "no-memory" folks like me to use the computer.
