"Permissions on the password database may be too restrictive"
 
Hi Folks
When i try to su to root in a console window I get the message

"Permissions on the password database may be too restrictive"

I've been messing around trying to correct ownership problems with chown and must have screwed something somewhere. I can ctrl-alt-F1 to a text console and login as root. However if I try to use any functions via the gui needing root privilages I get the message above or "su error"

Does anyone know which file the password database is in? I'm using Opensuse10.2 64 bit version

Thanks :scratch:
