Thanks for the quick response from Matthieu. I wasn't aware that xdm
has now disable root login. For detail, please read the response I
got. Thanks again.

Do you try to log in as root ? xdm has now root logins disabled by
default. Log in as a normal user and use 'su'.
You can also set the resource 'xlogin.Login.allowRootLogin' to 'true'
in /var/X11/xdm/Xresources to revert to the previous behaviour.
