Yes, before my stubid chmod everything was just fine.
I looked at auth.log in /var/log , the only thing he writes, is
standatr record, like su for user on tty... faild..
The same stig as if password that i'am entering is wrong. No erors and
etc...Juts wrong pass :((
Maybe there are some better logs for that?

I can enter as root from console. But i can't enter as root, from ssh.
I have to enter as some user from whell then SU and etc...
