Description Gagan Bihari Mishra 2006-04-03 15:13:12 EDT
Description of problem: Cannot change to "root" from a local user using "su -" command. Description :: Everytime i use the command "su -" to become the super user , it shows "wrong password" even if the password entered is totally correct. I have two additional users "gagan" and "guest". And i am not able to get to the Super User mode from any of the user accounts. Even when i try "su - gagan" from the same account,it shows the following error : [gagan@Tulip ~]$ su - gagan Password: su: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted One more thing i hv to say is that, i am not able to run any program that requires Administrator login,for example "File manager - super user mode" or "Network settings",etc. It shows an error : "Insufficient Rights" okay,i am able to get to the root login by ssh,that time it shows no error like "Password Incorrect" or anything like that.But when i try to get to the root's account from a local user,it shows the error as i mentioned above. And one more thing i want to clear here that i havent done anything crap with the system,and everything was working fine till yesterday. Please check this problem,if its a bug in FC5 or something else.

What does 'rpm -V coreutils' say?

In NEEDINFO for 9 months with no response and against EOL FC-5 version, closing INSUFFICIENT_DATA. In the case that you want to reopen it, test it with latest Fedora release(F8 or RAWHIDE) and provide requested informations.
