    I got the same problem. You just can't login with root...
    But with SSH, you can login as root with the password of "alpine"

    I think it's because of the permission on Terminal itself...

    install a thing called the SUID Lib fix, look for it in installer and if you can't find it, look up the repo.

    I am in the same boat, installed all the fixes that have been suggested, but when i try to login via terminal it keeps showing up as incorrect password. I have been trying to set permissions for folders but it keeps saying operation not permitted. i even went so far as to uninstall and reinstall the fixes.

    I guess it was a bad idea to post real problems while 2.0 is being released
