http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I recently upgraded from F15 to F17 using preupgrade. I logged in using my same user account I had before. However, I realized that whenever I tried to "su root"/"su -"/"su", I get "su: incorrect password" In my /var/log/secure log I found the following error. Code: Jan 13 14:48:48 MYHOST unix_chkpwd[27274]: check pass; user unknown Jan 13 14:48:50 MYHOST unix_chkpwd[27275]: check pass; user unknown Jan 13 14:48:50 MYHOST unix_chkpwd[27275]: password check failed for user (root) Jan 13 14:48:50 MYHOST su: pam_unix(su:auth): authenticati (HowTos)
