    Login and su - fail


    After messing around with pam and fuse a bit I seem to have broke the ability to su.

    I can "su user" but cannot "su - user" any longer. Also "login" now fails with authentication failed.

    In the log I can see permission denied on changing permissions of the pseudo terminal.

    Any thoughts on how to begin figuring this out?

    SSH and everything else seem to work just fine I should note.

    For posterity I should mention I fixed this.

    Using strace on 'strace su -' I discovered that /etc/pam.d/su-l' was missing! Adding it resolved the issue.
