Help!

I cannot seem to log in on tty on my laptop (probably after a update.)
The console only prints out "login Incorrect"
It's the same for my regular user and root
I can however log in in single user mode

Can you change root password via "passwd" in chrooted environment ie. booted from SystemRescueCD like during gentoo install from handbook: chroot and root password?

frigger,

Did your keymap get reset to "us" by the update?
You give your location as Norway. If you have a Norwegian keyboard on top of an American keymap, it may well end in tears.

Type your password at the Username prompt, so you can see it.

I should kick out /etc/conf.d/keymaps from etc-update one day :)

Already tried it but no go:/

my kemap is set to no-latin1.
When is add "single" to my grub prompt, then I can log in with my root password.

frigger,

The single runlevel does not start very much.

Can you log in at the console as root after a normal start?

Is it a console issue or a display manager issue?

When logged in via single user mode, check your system logs (in /var/log) for any details about why your multi-user mode login failed.

Disk full?

IIRC I've had trouble login in with a full disk - only single user mode let me login.
