Description of problem:
Cannot change to "root" from a local user using "su -" command.
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
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
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.
