Hi there, I've just installed Gentoo with KDE (took a loooong time) I've got KDE up and running and logged in as a normal user.

but when I want to su to root in a console, i get permission denieds all the time. i even tried to ssh to my own machine with a console, and then login as root. Also permission denied.

What am i doing wrong here?

You need to add your user account to the group wheel if you want to be able to su to root from it.
