[SLUG] Problem following Debian (testing) upgrade
Earlier today I upgraded another computer running Debian (testing).
Now I cannot log in.
Before upgrading I logged out from being a normal (non root) user then did
ctrl+alt+F1 and logged in as root on VT1. After logging in I did the usual
apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and then addeed a few new packages. When
I had finished I did alt+F7 without logging out from VT1. I discovered that
I could not login as ken or as root getting a "login incorrect" each time. I
can not log in on another VT either. I am still logged in as root on VT1 so I
can still work on the system. I have tried "changing" the password of my user account back to what it was but still cannot login and I have created a new dummy account
but cannot log in to it either.
The system uses shadow passwords with MD5.
Can anyone suggest where I should start looking to isolate the problem?
