Re: only root allowed login ...

Depending upon how your system is set up, the issue could have something to do with your /home partition, either full, or not mounting. When you are logged in as root can you get into your /home directory fine?

Or /var/log/secure depending on your distro.

What login method are you utiizing?

... ciao:

all of a sudden, i am only able to login as root. this is not something
i was trying to accomplish, and at a loss in figuring out how i did.
anyway.

as a given, login as a valid user, with correct password, terminated
immediately, with a new login prompt. invalid login attempts iterate
until a new session initiated.

ftp, and smtp allowed, telnet fails.

i'm not seeing anything mentioned in the logs with regard to failed
normal user login. i'm at a loss as to where i might start looking.

any thoughts, suggestion would be much appreciated ...

/var/log/message is your friend.

Regards,
Seenu.
