Unable to login as root

I’m using Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) with a KDE version 4.11.2, and i’m login with my normal user.

I don’t know why, but i cannot login as user root. In the terminal Konsole i wirte su, and after 5 seconds the answer is su: Permiso deneid.

Any advice?

Regards

raul

Please paste exactly what are you typing in code-tags and explain more what are you trying to do.

thanks for your quick response.

Well, can you log-in as root before? Did you change anything? Install anything? Compile anything?

First at all, i have a pop-up appearing every 10 minutes:

so, i found it how to avoid such message, and i have followed this instructions:


sudo rm /etc/pam.d/common-account /etc/pam.d/common-auth /etc/pam.d/common-password /etc/pam.d/common-session
sudo /usr/sbin/pam-config -a systemd

After execute the firs line, and introduce the root password. the second line was impossible to execute


raul@linux-xbom:~> sudo /usr/sbin/pam-config -a --systemd
Sorry, try again.
Sorry, try again.
Sorry, try again.
sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts
raul@linux-xbom:~> 


and now i cannit login as root. I have been trying at the beginning and is impossible.

thanks for your support.

Please, just post the link to the image that you upload somewhere else, like susepaste. Don’t try to paste the photo here.

so, i found it how to avoid such message, and i have followed this
instructions:

Code:

sudo rm /etc/pam.d/common-account /etc/pam.d/common-auth /etc/pam.d/common-password /etc/pam.d/common-session
sudo /usr/sbin/pam-config -a systemd

Gosh.
You might as well go to Spain to get Ebola treatment, about as dangerous, computer wise… :-/

You have to redo the links:


/etc/pam.d/common-account -> /etc/pam.d/common-account-pc
/etc/pam.d/common-auth -> /etc/pam.d/common-auth-pc
/etc/pam.d/common-password -> /etc/pam.d/common-password-pc
/etc/pam.d/common-session -> /etc/pam.d/common-session-pc

And to do that you need an auxiliary Linux, as you can not login as root.
Try first a text mode session, just in case; not with su, but login.
