I installed a new distribution a couple of weeks ago that uses a shadow
passwording system and today it decided not to let me login as anyone
except root. I got the following message when trying to login:
Message from syslogd@localhost at Wed May 14 01:01:08 1997 ...
localhost login: no shadow password for `russ' on `ttyp2'
Login denied. Shutdown in progress. Tue May 13 12:57:06 PDT 1997
Connection closed by foreign host.
Now I know there is no shutdown in progress. What could be the problem?
Thanks in advance.
