    Can you check the logs, or can't you log in at all?

    I can log on the machine, I cannot log in remotely via putty - it just says wrong password

    ok I figured out, that it works on one condition:

    DO NOT DELETE ROOT PASSWORD using
    sudo passwd -l root like it's explained in the howto

    but what if I don't want the root account to be enabled?

    You can become root by typing
    Code:
    sudo su

    did you at least read what I wrote? how using 'sudo' can help me entering password?

    I have the same problem.
    I can log on by tty, I cannot log on remotely via ssh - it just says wrong password. but I definitely use the same user name and the same password.:mad:
