Problem at boot?


I rebooted my mandrake linux system and upon restart I got the message acpi daemon failed : \proc\acpi\event : no such file or directory.

The shell appears different too, it just says login, not kernel 2.4?? running on i686 etc then login.

Also I cannot log in directly as root as this returns "login incorrect" but if I log in as user and then use "su" I can log into root from there. Any ideas what's wrong?

That's ok. Figured out the problem. I had changed the security level to higher, that seemed to solve the login problem. Havn't rebooted yet so don't know about the acpi problem though.
