Hi everyon,
I was running 8.? on my laptop and recently did an upgrade to 9.04. When I went to log on I recieved an 'authentication error' and was locked out. Had to manually turn off machine. Now I think this might have something to do with the pamring (gdm) from the threads i've read. But i'm not sure how to change it. When i go into recovery mode and 'drop to root', i still can't access the folder to change anything. What am i doing wrong...
