Re: [K12OSN] login problem



Not running PAM (that I know of)

Can't get to a shell because I can't login. . .

Server was fine a whle ago then I ctrl-alt-F2 to get to a root console and 
it wouldn't let me login.  Went back to my X session and exited it and 
dropped to a console.  No login.

Rebooted and still no login.
