Also, I'd like it if you could confirm what is and is not actually working. Eg. console login as which users? ssh login? (seems this fails), X login, and also what about login in as root and then "su aapanju"?
basically what was happening is that I would boot to the GUI and login
usiing aapanju and pass and it would fail.
Than I tried logging invto GUI using root after following a tutorial to
enable root login! That didn't work at first but worked while msging you.
Than I changed psswd fir aapanju from terminal as root but still auth fail.
Than I used GUI to change password and disabled sshd rebooted system.
Tried logging in as aapanju and it worked.
