Re: Cannot login or su

I don't know much of the way things work here, but you can probably use:

strace -o sulog.txt su -

[the final - is optional - man su]

Then read sulog.txt, it might give a clue as to what it was trying to do.

strace is in the strace package - if you can't install because you're
not root you can probably do something useful with the source package
- apt-get source strace

Also, have you tried booting to single-user mode?

Good luck.
