I got locked out of root , ( normal login tells me root account expired).
If I boot in single user mode and I try to change root password i get this
pwd_mkdb: 0 > max uid value (4294967295)
pwd_mkdb: at line #2
pwd_mkdb: /etc/pw.7BUxbZ Inappropriate file type or format
passwd: pam_chauthtok(): error in service module
what does /etc/pw.7BUxbZ mean ?
the number after the dot (7BUxbZ) is different every time i run passwd.
is there a fix for this ? help please !
