Started installing some security packages onto my LFS-6.3 base system.
Installed the following in the order listed:
linux-pam-0.99.10.0 (created /etc/pam.conf as shown in blfs-6.3 book
under config info for this pkge)
shadow-188.8.131.52 (reinstall as required.)
I did not finish making the configuration of shadow when I accidently
logged out. Now I can't login as either root or regular user. I'll enter
the login and it'll just sit there never asking for password before
finally stating Login incorrect. How do I fix this? Can I boot using the
LiveCD add in the scripts and be able to boot again from my system?
Also, which way should I go, using /etc/pam.conf configs or directory
based security using /etc/pam.d/<files>?
