Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-06-20 02:54:56 EDT
Which version of audit-libs package do you have? And which kernel?
Do you have SELinux on?
Comment 2 Nadav Kavalerchik 2005-06-20 03:51:16 EDT
i'm using audit-libs 0.9.8-1 and kernel 2.6.11-1.1287_FC4
and i don't use selinux.

while...
booting into INIT 1 and trying to change root's passwd i get System Error after 
the passward change in the /etc/shadow file.
and trying to login returns "login incurrect"
i added new user with passward and without password... still the same !
i changed the /etc/pam.d/login auth,pass file params to md5, shadow , 
nullok ... more , and still the same error.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2005-06-20 05:03:56 EDT
Hmm this seems like duplicate of bug 160929. Could you try to upgrade to a newer
kernel?
Comment 4 Nadav Kavalerchik 2005-06-20 08:01:43 EDT
true, it a duplicate of bug 160929 !    
    
and after upgrading to kernel 1383_fc5 the problem was solved too :-)    
thanks !
