OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Login To Account - Only As Root
Apr 11, 2010
I have a dual-boot system with windows xp and suse 11.2. The last time tried to enter to suse i couldn't login to my account ,only as root. I tried to solve this through suse dvd repair option andit detected a problem in grub. i repaired it but still nothing.Also the /home partition exists and i can access it when i login as root.
This may sound a bit odd, but after installing Ubuntu Server 9.10 64-bit version, I can't seem to log in with the root account that I created. My user account works fine. I thought that I may have fat fingered the password when I created it so I ran the installer again since it takes very little time to do so. When creating the new root account password, I was very careful to type it correctly. After the install was complete, I am still unable to use the root account. I'm unable to SU from my normal user account, too. I just receive the Login incorrect error. Is there something with using root accounts with Ubuntu server that I'm missing?
I just installed Fedora 12 on a laptop. I changed the default shell on the root account to /bin/tcsh and changed the runlevel to 3 and then rebooted. Now I can't login into the root account: it returns me immediately to the login prompt and I can't see any error message (the screen is cleared).Why is this happening?Can I boot into some sort of safe mode so I can undo my changes to the /etc/inittab and /etc/passwd file?I tried booting with a Live CD with the intention of mounting the filesystem and making the changes, but the new filesystem is a LVM and it won't let me mount it (or I don't know how to mount a Logical Volume).
My install of 11.4 has been running perfectly for for several weeks now. But- (always a but) today it started acting up. I cannot log in to any user account including Root after logging out. After a cold boot I can log in again anywhere but after logging out I have to reboot again then I can get back in to any account once. After logging out any attempted log in causes the splash screen to blank for a few seconds and then it comes back with the previous successful user name log in but typing in the password blanks the screen a few seconds again. Clicking on a user account also blanks the screen a few seconds and then it again comes back with the previous log in users name.
I planned to use Squid on my W2k3 network, because I'm tired of ISA2k6.it's a factory in itself. So, I just installed a VM with OpenSuse 11.2 and joined it to my AD W2k3 domain. After correcting the clock problems, everything is running fine except a strange feature that I was not able to solve.After a reboot, I'm not able to login with a domain account. I enter the username/password, choose the domain then it the input fields become grey for 1-2 seconds then the password field is reset and nothing happens.The most strange part comes when you logon with the local root account. You login as root, then logoff and login with any domain account : works like a charm..
I want, when I boot up, to load and log-in automatically a default user. I get a login in screen with the option to login as root, I do not want this. How do disable the option to login to X as root and just load as me/default user?
a user called, cannot login - forgot the password - common case ( 200 user system )- but this one seems to be a bit different:
user tries to log in via ssh - login/passwd incorrect, via telnet - no problem
tried a few different users on ssh - no problem... It seems the access denied applies to just a single, standard user account - only via ssh, all other users are able to login... tried also to change the passwd, no difference. beside re-creating the account, can you think about anything else? system: RHEL AS3, 2.4.21-51ELsmp
I just installed Debian 6 on a server and when the server powers up, it shows me all the accounts I created in order for me to choose and login under an account, except for the root account. At the colo where the server is going, they need the root account at the login screen.
I recently made a computer for someone who decided to get a new one instead.. so i thought i'd make a server out of it lk i had it before. so i deleted their account (while on their account) and made me an account.. but now when i try to login to my account it's.. not there? such as when i type my username and pass it says i entered an invalid user/pass. any idea how i can get my user accounts back or atleast logon to this system? i know the root password if there's any way i can login under the root account.
i,m using Fedora11 since some time.... to day i hav updated my system but after updation, im unable to login my system through Gnome, but i can login by KDE as usual. now there is another problem i can,t login system throgh root account although i can access root account through terminal
I have installed OpenSUSE a few months ago and worked fine. But from yesterday i can't login with root user. I received the message: Login: root Invalid user name I have no question for password neither.
Using openSUSE 11.4 (64-bit). Desktop is default KDE. All of a sudden I am no longer able to login. My desktop only has one user and when I key in the password (which I am 100% sure it is correct!) I get the dreaded "Login failed" message. I followed these instructions without success: How to reset/recover the ROOT password in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE Following the instructions in the above link, I tried re-typing the old password and created new ones too. But I keep on getting the Login Failed message. A strange situation
How can I enable "Auto Login" for root user?In " Yast --> Security And Users --> User And Group Management --> Expert options --> Login Settings " is just my own user and there's no root user to choose.
So when I write my password in a terminal the letters occur in clear not ***(star). what shall I do that enetering the password to work right.I want to say if I push key f for example the system to show me one *.I know it's easy but really I forgot .
I just did a clean install of 11.3 over my dual boot xp/11.2 system and kept my home directory.When I booted the system a console box came up.I then disabled auto login and rebooted.The login screen showed two users, 1- Tom and 2- Root.When I login as Tom the console comes up and when I boot into Root the GUI KDE system comes up.How do I delete Root from the Login screen and make it so that user Tom boots into the GUI KDE desktop?
I just happened to lock myself out of ssh access on my xen virtual server since I changed the ssh port but forgot to open it in the firewall. No problem, I just access it through VNC in VM manager, I thought, however I have some special chars in my root password and the keymap through VNC seems to have changed somehow. So I cant login as root, nor do su or sudo. I can login as user. I need the sign " but can't figure out how.
I need to run a script (which requires root privileges) on login per-user only. I want this to runtomatically so I'll add an appropriate line to .profile.A couple of questions:1 The easiest way I can think of to run the script as root is to setuid, but I know there are security concerns. Is there a better way
I added a whole slew of apps to my favorites and lost the 'Shutdown' option...every time I try to shutdown in the Terminal I am told I must be logged in as Root to do so...I can't figure out how to do this I'm a newbie to Linux but a CNE 5 -haven't used it 10 years- an MCP and A+ certified I've searched local help and SuSe's site and I can't find anythingI've only spent a couple of hrs on this and have had SuSe 11.2 installed since last Sunday
I was logged in as root, made some changes to my users and think I may have inadvertently changed root somehow. Ever since then, my machine runs just fine, I can sudo, Yast, etc without any issues. (Root password is fine) but when I try to log in as root, the system changes the screen display, as if it's going to login, then returns me back to the login prompt without error. If I "ctl+alt+F1", I drop out to the console and can login as root, but cannot startx because the display is already in use.... So, I removed the .X0-lock, but still cannot get the GUI to load. (after running rm /tmp/./X0-lock, I get a fatal error, "can't establish any listening sockets..." "Ctl+Alt+F7" brings me back to the GUI where I am logged in as myself in Gnome) if I login with my user account, everything runs fine and all is well.
Had setup ssh in openSUSE 11.2 and modified the configuration file /etc/ssh/sshd_config to PermitRootLogin noHowever, I am still able to login through ssh as a normal user and then do a su to switch to a superuser/root.Isn't PermitRootLogin no supposed to prevent this?
I manage to get my mobile broadband working (connected, I mean) in both root & user account. However, my web browser, IM etc only work in root account.In user, knetworkmanager does show that my Huawei E160G is working fine, connected but I still can't surf the net & chat. I've included the dialout & uucp group for user account but that still doesn't resolve the problem
