permissions on password database too restrictive
I've been working on my computer (Suse 10.0)and in a overenthousiastic action I changed something in the security settings. When trying to log on as root, the password is false and I get the message "permissions on the password database may be too restrictive". I learned allready that is has to do with the security setting "paranoid", though I don't have clue how to fix it. The password is still correct because, if I want to shut the engine down, it asks for the root pw and it still does the job on the pw I set. My fear is that I've got to completely reinstall the system. I can login as root with the rescue funtion of the DVD (it doesn't asks a pw there), though I'm not so strong in the command line so I don't have a clue what to enter to get things up and running again.
Thanks for you help
