This is my first bug report, so I hope I'm doing this right.
I just did a fresh install of squeeze just to find out that neither root nor
my user could login. I found that they didn't have passwords so I tried to use
'passwd' but I got the error 'passwd: System Error.' I did a
'dpkg-reconfigure -plow libpam-runtime' and dissabled Winbind. 'passwd' worked
after that. I found out that the Winbind option from configuring
libpam-runtime came from the Winbind package. IDK if it's a windbind or a pam
issue, but I marked it as important because it caused me to not have a useable
system after a fresh install.
To reproduce, do a fresh install of squeeze and let PAM handle Winbind. You
won't be able to login or use passwd. Reconfigure libpam-runtime and dissable
Winbind or uninstall Winbind. passwd should work again.
