[Freedombox-discuss] pam-abl: BDB0060 PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery

Perhaps someone here can help me here. I can only log into my FBX using
ssh with a public key, since password authentication consistently times out.

Moreover, when logged in I cannot run commands as sudo. I get the
following error after several seconds: "pam-abl: BDB0060 PANIC: fatal
region error detected; run recovery"

I found this bug report, which may be relevant:

> I have ended up in a situation where the pam_abl database is corrupt.  I assume this is after unclean shutdowns due to power outages etc. The results of this is that Apache start print the following error message in its error log: "BDB0060 PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery".  The log keeps growing and leads to all disk space being used up.  Several services then fail to start and the box is no longer accessible.

However, removing pam-abl databases is not possible for me, since I
cannot run any commands as superuser.

Unfortunately, I do not have local access to the FBX.

Any suggestions for how to solve this problem?
