Hello! At first i've started having segfaults when trying to sudo, then
i've restarted my machine and could not login at all. To solve this i've
entered recovery mode, opened the root prompt and used this command
"apt-get purge -y samba samba-common samba-client libpam-smbpass && apt-
get install -y samba libpam-smbpass". The problem its gone, but now i
have another error: when i log using gdm, after entering my password, a
dialog box appears with the word "Error!" and a "OK" button, and when i
click "OK" the system starts just fine. Also, when trying to sudo, i get
an "Error", but it still works. Yet also, there is the app
System->Administration->Users and Groups which have a error: when trying
to unlock it, it locks the window for some seconds, then appears with
the dialog box: "Coud not authenticate - An unexpected error has
occured" with a Close button. When closing it, the window locks and
freezes, and the "Wait or Force Close" dialog appears. Anyone else with
these problems?
