Authority Failed?


Okay, so I tried to install some voice_auth program, I had found that would basically allow me, to sign in using my voice instead of a text passwd, and i couldnt get it to work, so I figured I would go back to the reg., and now after installng a few PAM pkgs (btw im on Debian) and a fftw pkg, I cant even sign into GDM or sign in when i use 'login' the only thing I can do is log into single user mode, at bootup. otherwise, when I'm on GDM, all I have to do is put in my username, and it will give me the error "Authority Failed"7 same with If I try to choose 'Configure' or 'Reboot' or even 'Shutdown'


okay so I looked at my auth.log file, and this is what it was saying:
