I will give some more explanation as soon as my time permits.

Hope to hear a success message in the meantime ;-)

Yes, it worked!!! Great! Thanks!

I tried ls -ld in my Mageia, and results are absolutely identical. Since I've done chmod there too, I was able to login to Mageia as well!

I believe this is Pardus Corporate 2 who changed permissions on root folders of my other partitions. Otherwise it would be too suspicious to have same problem on 2 different OSes at the same time. I probably need to raise this as a bug in Pardus.
