Pretty straight forward. I have an ubuntu 9.10 NBR fresh install, and su nor sudo will accept my password from the command line. I can use synaptic and the updater tool, as well as invoke things with gksudo, but not invoke with sudo or su in the terminal.
The password is standard 8 character, 2 upper case letters, 2 numbers, and the rest lower case letters. But it says the password is incorrect.
As stated, this is a fresh install, I haven't fiddled with any settings. Am I missing a step? Or is there something horribly wrong.
