passwd demon failing?

Title: passwd demon failing?


using fedora core on a toshiba tecra M2 laptop.

its a dual boot using grub with windows xp

I have been using it regularly with no troubles. All patches including latest kernel have been applied.

yesterday i installed httpd, ftp and samba, again i downloaded all patches.

I am using the default fedora gui, when i try to log in as a user or root, i immediately get the message "authentication failed"

So i booted in single user mode, changed the passwd and tried again. same message.

It's as if the auth demon is not listening as it spits me out straight away. root or normal user

is there anything i can check to make sure this is listening? if not any clues as to why this has all of a sudden happened? has samba corrupted something?
