Userdrake uh-oh; root now the only working login
Running Mandrake 9.0 here...
Last night I was screwing around with userdrake. I previously had two user accounts setup, one for me and for my wife. I managed to completely delete her account and change the username on my account. :oops:
Now I can't login to my account either with the old username/pw or the new username/pw. I can't login to her account either. The only account that I've been able to login to is root.
Through the root account, I can see that /home/me and /home/wife still exist, and also a /home/newusername for the new username that I created. The contents of /me and /wife are still there.
When I attempt to re-create the wife's account through Mandrake Configuration|userdrake while logged in as root, I get an error message something like this:
can't lock userlib file /etc/ptmp or /etc/gtmp exists
userdrake won't start from a command line either, and I'm not sure if edited /etc/passwd by hand will work or if I even know enough about it to not screw it up.
Any advice, O Gods of MandrakeLinux?
