When I first started using Vl 5.9 Delux  I noticed that after logging in and I'm using kde desktop, when in terminal mode, and I typed  'su', it would automatically enter 'root' without having to enter a password.  This I liked very much since I am the only user on this computer.   It is very convenient not having to enter the password every time.

Sometime recently though, in my dinking around with the system, I must have done something that canceled that great little convenience out.  Does anyone know how to reset it  Huh

Nothing is right or wrong, good or bad, only thinking makes it so.  Think about it.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.

saulgoode thanks much,

But I'm sitting here chuckling to myself, and AT myself.  It only took me about 4 or 5 different tries before I finally realized that my system has no idea who 'reb' is.  When I finally replaced reb with rebel, it worked like a champ  Grin  thanks again
