I just spent a full day installing and configuring Sourcemage and a new kernel (188.8.131.52). And after I finished, I rebooted into SUSE and updated my menu.lst file so I would be using the new kernel. And when I typed root for my username, I received this error
I am not even asked for a password.
PAM-securetty : Couldn't open /etc/securetty
Your help is appreciated
Is this in SuSE os Sourcemage?
Sourcemage. The menu.lst file is in SUSE. No problems in SUSE
This is solved.
I used my installation cd, and got to a shell. I used these commands.
Then I rebooted the machine, logged in, and all is well.
mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/root
Well I'm glad you have got it working again, chroot is very usful.
I was just entering the commands that the guy on forums.sourcemage.org said. I have no idea how chroot works, I amjust glad it did.
