Hi all folks,
For unknown reason my Gentoo 1.4 box can't start after running 'emerge -u world' Login as ROOT does not need root-password (key in root-password popup invalid password) and can't login as USER.
Incidentally Fail-Safe can be started
cat /etc/fstab found following difference.
ReiserFS changed to xfs;
/dev/ROOT / xfs noatime 0 0
following line being added;
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
Can I delete above line and change 'xfs' back to 'reiserfs' to fix starting problem?
# cat /etc/passwd
(USER/satimis not found there)
How to restore 'root-password' and re-add USER. Whether;
# /etc/passwd passwd
# /etc/passwd useradd
can solve my problem.
This test box without backup therefore I have to taking precaution on each step made.
