Post 3+ Months Ago

I've been using redhat 9 for a couple of months now. It so happened that I have to repartition my drive, and so I did.

After a fresh install of redhat 9, I can't seem to login into both the graphical mode and the console. I can't even login as a root.

Can anyone help me with this problem.. I tried to reinstall redhat 9 again, but thesame thing happend...

I need your help guys..and thank you so much for the support

Do this: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linu ... ingle.html

Once you have a prompt, do:
passwd root
and change your password (or reenter it)
reboot

if that doesn't work, post again

I did a fresh install on redhat 9... the installation went perfectly, with no hang ups..

My problem is that, when I reach the login screen, after I typed in user name and password.. it shows the console. I tried loggin in from the console, and it seems to go back to its login prompt.

I can't login with both normal user, or the root.

can you help? please do... i'm still a newbie with linux....thanks in advance guys

thanks for the reply man.. but I don't think that'll help .. I simply can't login for a normal user as well as the root..

when I login using GUI, it'll show the console, then it kepps on flashing the login menu..when I login from the console, it goes back to the login screen after I entered my password.

I hope I'll have answers to this problem.. help me please??

thanks in advance

Try doing as I posted above and getting to a command prompt, then doing:
usermod -s /bin/bash root
