Can't login on text console
Date: Wed, 07 Apr 2004 13:42:40 GMT
I had installed SuSE Pro 9.0 on a system I built using an Intel PR440FX dual
Pentium Pro system board. The system has run flawlessly since November. The
other day I powered it up booting into the GUI as usual. While waiting for the
GUI to load everything after entering my ID/Password I CTRL-ALT-F1 to a text
console and tried logging in as root to check the syntax of iwpriv. At the
login prompt i entered root<enter> but no password prompt, just an immediate
"Login incorrect", screen clears and back to a login prompt. I tried all non
privileged accounts, same result. I have another machine, a Fujitsu 6631C
laptop also with SuSE Pro 9.0, I can login to the text consoles on that without
a problem. Fortunately I can login via the GUI. Can someone point me in the
general direction where I would look to examine some .conf which is preventing
any ID from logging via a text based console?
