Usually there is a OS group called dba. All members of this group can connect as sysdba, because the are logged in to the OS.
Normally root is not a member of this group, but a root user can make any user a member of this group.
For more info launch:
grep -i ora /etc/group
If you make root member of dba group, it should solve your problem.

By default sys user will be audited, so Oracle will create audit files. This path doesn't have write permission for root. This is why you are getting that error.

[root@clifford]# grep root /etc/group
