Root login to kdm still possible even if disabled
This document (7007124) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc is the configuration file for kdm and provided by the kdm package. It comes already with AllowRootLogin=false set but /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/read_sysconfig.sh sets ALLOW_ROOT_LOGIN="true" . With this value it creates /var/adm/kdm/kdmrc.sysconfig which gets read by kdm upon startup and enables root login even if set to false.
As a temporary solution edit the file /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/read_sysconfig.sh and change line 32 from ALLOW_ROOT_LOGIN="true" to false .
