Can not Login


Interesting problem. At the AntiX's login screen, when I input the correct name and password it switches back to the username. the same problem exist also in the command prompt. At times it switches when i touch a key.
I am trying to avoid re-installing the / files

Originally there was a error message the first time in the command prompt but i failed to copy it. It never appeared again.
I managed to boot into the last of three kernel options

antix at sda1, 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp
antix-mll 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp
antix-mll 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp(init3}


and into the graphical interface through startx. I got into synaptic package manager as root
but I can't SU in the terminal. I did an update and fixed broken packages but the same problem continues.

Check /etc/slim.conf and your ~/.xinitrc file.
Your sudoers file might also need editing.
