Before anyone starts shouting at me – I know it’s a bad idea to do this but I was trying out the new Gentoo distro and found myself unable to log in via the user account that I created during the installaiton process. The only account I can log in was the *root* account. KDM disable the root access by default, as the result I have to enable this via the following steps to get myself logged into the Gentoo.

and change it to
Das ist alles!!
