Gutsy to Hardy - upgrade hiccups
So I decided to upgrade to Hardy after doing a Wubi
install on a couple of machines. With some gotchas of course.
I couldn't login. Not even as root. It wouldn't even ask for a password, but straightaway said "login failed" (on the console) and "authentication failed" (gdm).
That seemed like a PAM problem and it was. My encrypted HOME setup
which had a problem loading into PAM.
The fix : a recompile, but after the patch mentioned in this bug
Also, my network profiles
stopped working - which turned out to be because of sudo. Adding a 'env_keep=NETSCHEME' to the Defaults in sudoers fix that too.
