I have something weird now.
Earlier today I was (as always before) able to change to root in the Terminal using su and root password.
I updates some packages from PISI package manager including policykit, kernel, kdebase, kernel-headers.
Now after rebooting I keep getting authentication error also after succesfully re-setting the root password to be even more sure that I type in the correct password.
michiel@zandbelt ~ $ sudo passwd root
Nieuw UNIX wachtwoord:
Nieuw UNIX wachtwoord herhalen:
passwd: wachtwoord is met succes aangepast
michiel@zandbelt ~ $ su
michiel@zandbelt ~ $
This has not to do with the earlier mentioned root-privileges setting (I have that checked for user michiel), it just keeps returning an authentication error (after quite some time) whilst I am 100% sure I give the correct password.
does not work
sudo works still fine, but I want to be able to su as well, just like I always could.
give me the root promppt (blue colored ending and # sign)
