How to enable root login on Sabayon [Solved]

I installed Sabayon KDE on a laptop. Coming from Slackware, I am used to be able to login as root. How can this be done with Sabayon? I cannot seem to find it anywhere online.

I also have Calculate Linux on another laptop and that allows root login.

Not being able to login as root could be a deal breaker for me. I find Sabayon running fine otherwise.

You can always

Code: Select all

to become root if needed.

I am going to take it that you cannot log into Sabayon as root. That is fine. The distro is working extremely well on second laptop. I am very impressed especially after big KDE update. Everything is working flawlessly.

Kudos to Sabayon team.

I will mark as solved
