Made a GUI installation. Yes, very nice, all run smooth. Dutifully entered
my root password then my user name & password, rebooted and could
not login, neither as root nor as user.
Back to text install and root/user have no problems.
Bought the download Standard Deluxe. Made again a Gui installation and above problem
persists. Neither root nor user can login.
May be because there is a common
dislike between guis and me.
Further checking, user is absent in /etc/passwd and has no /home/user directory.
root is in /etc/passwd and has a /root directory, shows up in login screen only, no user,
yet root can still not login.
