I set out and installed OL 6.3 64 bit. Got it all working like I wanted but they did a yum update and now it looks like I have OL 6.4. One problem I have now is that I can no longer log onto the gnome desktop as root. I can only logon as another user, but then from terminal I can do "su - root". What can I change so that I can log onto the desktop as root?

"I" did yum update. "They" was a typo. I do want root access. This is a test box for an eventual DB upgrade.
