<p>Are you getting both the username and password prompts
<br>and then getting nothing after entering the password?
<br>This is a behavior I am seeing on a laptop Pentium II.
<br>In my case, I can CTRL-ALT-F[1-6] to get to another
<br>VT.&nbsp; All attempts to log in any VT display meet the same
<br>fate.&nbsp; Also, attempting to log in using GDM fail in
<br>this way.&nbsp; In my case, the UI GDM continues to respond.
<p>Lastly, trying to CTRL-ALT-DEL to initiate a shutdown
<br>does cause the TERM and KILL signals to be sent to
<br>all processes.&nbsp; Then the shutdown process locks up
<br>after a message is printed about unloading the
<br>keyboard driver.
<p>Interestingly, if I boot in single mode ("linux single"
<br>at the boot prompt), and then load GDM, I am able to
<br>log on with no trouble.
<p>I have sent a message to the maintainer of the
<br>shadow-utils package, but have gotten no response.
<p>I suspect this problem has to do with a fsck-up on
<br>my part in getting util-linux configured properly when
<br>I built it.&nbsp; I rebuilt util-linux with the sources
<br>pointed to by Changes several development kernel
<br>revisions ago (~2.4.0-test7).
