"cannot find password database", boot failure
My machine is getting an error in booting and keeps automatically
rebooting. The error message: "cannot find password database".
This is after I had a system crash and had to manually fsck the root
I have no idea where this "password database" is. Online search, including
on this forum, turned up nothing. I tried to play with /etc/passwd. That
did not help either.
At this point, I can get in the system through the rescue disk. But I can
not start it through regular boot.
I am running FC10, 126.96.36.199-117.fc10.i686.PAE
I am wondering if there is a way of repairing this "password
database", which I guess may be the only way of getting the system back to normal.
Any advices or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
