Logging in


When I try to log into Redhat 9 it says my account has expired and to contact the administrator but I am the only user and the administrator? What do I do?

Logging in

Hello,

You have to log in as ROOT and modify the password for the normal user.
Take a look at 'man passwd' and see warn/expire sections.
