Can't login & hal broken
Fri, 21 Mar 2008 21:56:50 +0000
I'm running Kubuntu 7.10 on a Thinkpad T43 and until now haven't had any
I tried to install likewise-open and noticed that as soon as I attempted to
start it, kpowermanager lost track of my system battery (which I ignored at the
time). I then discovered that my system wouldn't auto-detect a USB memory
stick. When I attempted to manually mount the stick, I found that the system
would no longer recognize my user password. I subsequently discovered that
another user's password was also not recognized.
I tried logging on in recovery mode to reset the user passwords, but this
didn't allow me to log in.
I also tried removing the likewise-open package, but again, no change.
I decided to see what system services were running using the module in "System
Settings", but got a message that the module couldn't be loaded and was told
that either I have an orphaned module or an old 3rd party module lying
Any explanations? Can someone get me pointed in the right direction to fix? I
really want to avoid reinstalling the system.
