    There's a good reason for this. It prevents you from messing your system up and is more secure.

    You shouldn't need to login as root everytime your computer starts. Use your normal user account then switch to root user only when you need to.

    Why do you need to auto login with root?

    Take Care,

    I'm going a bit further: do you know what you're asking?

    What you are trying is against all measures taken to make linux the safest OS on earth. Virusmakers would be happy if this would be the new trend.
    It means you are opening up your system in a terrible way.

    So, don't. Stick to 'su', or even better 'su -c' for every single command asking for root privileges.

    don't do it! if you do it will be less secure than Windows, and will
    be totally unusable quicker than you might imagine.

    I agree with everyone else. Nothing really for me to add, so I am not really sure why I am posting this reply
    Once you install a modem, the government can look into your computer and watch everything you do! That's why every night before I go to bed, I turn the monitor to the wall.

    "less secure than windows"

    That's not possible, I do not think..... running as 'root' is as dumb as
    running as 'Administrator', though in windows it's the default and in
    Linux you really have to try to do it. In windows people accept it as
    normal, and in every other OS in the world you get a long thread by people
    who know better telling you it's a bad idea. In windows you basically
    need to do it all the time (for example, to add a toolbar to a web
    browser, sheesh) and in every other OS you rarely do. Still, Linux as
    'root' is probably more secure than windows as Administrator, but both are
    stupid.

    Good luck.

    What? Are you serious? Do you have brains?... Use them and think about what you want to do! Why not just constantly keep open your front door and invite the burglars so they can mess up your house? Would you like that?
