Topic: Can't SU to root - "Pam_start" issue?
I just upgraded my FreeBSD server (Dell PowerEdge 2550) from 6.4-Release to 7.1-Release using the FreeBSD-update tool. The upgrade went well, considering that it doesn't have Xorg or any Desktop manager installed. There're only 15 ports installed on it.
The only somewhat "major" issue I came across once the upgrade was completed was that some ports/binaries wouldn't run. Either I had to reinstall some ports, or I had to re-link some library files in order to get them to work.
One of the most notable was that I can't SU to root as I was able to prior to the upgrade. No matter if I try SU'ing from the console itself or SSH I get this error....
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: su: Undefined symbol "pam_start"
I don't even know where to begin. I'm not too familiar with PAM. Anyone ever seen this before??
I tried Googling but wasn't able to find anything.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
