Now, due my low experience with it i can download only out from "ROOT", but i can not make any administration. I do not quite understand this question. Presumably you are caught in the graphical interface X11 with some security functions that I do not know the details of. The standard procedure I use is to press Ctrl Alt F1 to get a console terminal where I can log in as root with full privileges for everything. The next thing would be to edit /etc/inittab # The default runlevel. id:3:initdefault: In Ubuntu you presumably have 5 here. In some distributions even runlevel 3 starts X11. In such cases I remove the file /rc3.d/SXXgdm (XX is a two digit number) Different distributions place the file at different places: /etc/rc3.d/SXXgdm /etc/init.d/rc3.d/SXXgdm /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/SXXgdm This way I always log in in terminal mode. When I want X11 I type startx. Shift between terminals with Alt F1 to Alt F6. You may log in as root on some of them and as a normal user on others. It may be a good idea to start X11 from a terminal that is logged in as a normal user. Some Linux systems do not behave well in case you run X11 as root (e.g. Mandriva). Personally I prefer Debian. It does not have any restrictions and I am allowed to run X11 as root on my own responsibility. In my experience the probability for unexpected behaviour is much higher under X11 as compared to terminal mode. The reason is that soundcards and other resources are shared with other programs. Things like changing the sampling speed with ossmix may lead to unexpected problems. There are only two valid reasons to use X11 as I see it. 1) Your videocard is not supported by svgalib. 2) You want to run other programs simultaneously. X11 works perfectly well nearly always - but one looses some valuable screen area. Starting stopping and changing the sound system is not always safe. Presumably some programs believe one does not do such things and behave as if changes to the sound system do not exist with a total lockup of the sound system as a consequence.73 Leif / SM5BSZ# This message is sent to you because you are subscribed to the mailing list .
