A bit more detail:
Normal users can no longer login, they receive:
No supported authentication methods left to try!
I can still login with root and toor. I've tried everything I know of, short
of rebooting it. If you guys have any insight, it's greatly appreciated, as
I'm at a total loss.
With the normal user that is currently logged in (before this occured), here
are some examples of the odd behavior:
captkirk at hybrid:~$ /bin/ls
-bash: /bin/ls: Permission denied
root at hybrid:/etc/rc.d# /bin/ls -al /bin/ls
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 22784 Nov 4 19:24 /bin/ls
root at hybrid:/etc/rc.d# finger captkirk; grep captkirk /etc/master.passwd
finger: captkirk: no such user
When users get the "No supported authentication methods" error, I do see valid
authentications in /var/log/auth.log. So this behavior makes no sense, to me
