Please enlighten me how one gets root on a system where you can't get to a login prompt, and where logging in as a regular user fails?

I've asked you twice now to file a bug against a legitimate problem. If you can't get a TTY on your box with Ctrl+Alt+F2 your install is broken.

I've given up filing bugs on anything gnome or X related in the Fedora bugzilla, as they get closed when a release goes EOL without being fixed. Please prove me wrong this time.

I'll need to see the problem first, and all my F10 boxes are working in this regard.

I've seen boxes where you cannot login any more because of LDAP and/or Kerberos Auth not working (for whatever reasons).

That's true for >root< account as well - even if the nsswitch.conf is *correct*.

However. Single User mode always helped and your Tech support will know how to get into init 1. I hope. If not, you should find another Tech Support :-P

Regarding your (Ctrl-)Alt-F2 Problem. I've never seen this. In no release. Well, something similar on a Desktop Box, where you try to switch from X to text console and the system freezes -> This was some nvid** driver bug. Already fixed with latest drivers of course.

Still. Single User mode is an option that *always* worked since I know UN*X/Linux and all their flavours :-)
