    I can boot as root and use my current root password however in
    a normal user enviroment it does not.Never happened until I update.
    maybe pam problem not sure?Never set a root password until I had
    this problem.Thought a root password would solve the problem.It
    did not.Was using the default root password root but stop working.
    Hope this extra info helps so I think it was caused by updating since
    it was working before.Thanks.
