Well this is really strange. It goes without saying that this problem
started recently -- it worked before I updated some things on my system
(Berkeley DB, OpenSSL, & OpenLDAP).
And, now, when I am running KDE-3, it will not accept the root password.
It works fine to log in with KDM or in a virtual terminal, but whether

the result is: an "incorrect password" message.
I upgraded to OpenSSL-0.9.8j which didn't work and I had to revert to
I currently have:
and am considering reverting to:
if anyone thinks that that could be the problem. Or, I notice that FC
is using 2.4.12 with 5 recent patches (2.4.x).
