Raspberry Pi running Raspbian (2014-01-07)
The error seem to have come from nowhere, as I was trying to login as root via SSH (yes I have it activated - for now) I got the message "Access Denied" which felt wrong since I am the owner of the raspberry pi, I had set up the whole thing and I was the one who created the user's password. I went to the physical Raspberry Pi, hooked it up to a monitor and tried to login.
What followed was an failed attempt to access my pi, well, I could log in, but I was imeadiately met with the "MyHostName login:"
What I saw on-screen, step by step:
I entered "root" to login as that user
"Password:" I entered my password and hit return.

As you can see I can, well not quite but still, log in - but I am imeadiately signed out again.
Unfortuneatly I have not set up other sudoers so I can not access the /etc/passwd to try and correct whatever's wrong.
I had finally set it up as a LAMP-server, everything was up and running and now this... All I hope is that I don't have to re-flash the SD.
Thanks in Advanced.
