[SOLVED] root: unknown user
1st the moral to this story is do not upgrade your system at 5am before your 4th cup of coffee
Anyway, that is what I did. Well I hosed the mergemaster of the group file somehow and what that did was to remove root and toor from my group file.
At first I thought the password were just blanked out until I tried
root: unknown user
I can just adduser root or can I?
My other option seems to be to boot in single user and copy or merge the group file from /var/temproot.
OR are there other options than those two options that I've missed?
