ReInstall of System borked Admin Pwd for Apps


For various reasons, needed to reinstall Debian Testing (Wheezy) on a flash drive formatted into 2 partitions. A system partition and one for HOME.

Since the install I'm no longer able to use Synaptic with my password (I enabled sudo in the Installer). I used the exact User name and Password as before during the reinstall.

It all works if I start Synaptic from the command-line using sudo. The same applies btw to all applications requiring the password for privileges. Don't think I've left out any details ...

What do I have to do to fix this?
