In trying to get samba server configured on my Fedora I used the following command to set a password:
sudo smbpasswd -a user
'user' also happens to be the main user account on the system: the one I log in to the KDE desktop with. After rebooting, my autologon no longer works instead it prompts me for a password. Now neither my original logon password nor the password I set for samba will get me in to the desktop. They are two different passwords. My original password seems to almost work, the login screen goes away for a moment and I get blackness but it immediately comes back with the login again. Whereas anything else I type (including the password I set for the samba user) just do nothing but clear the password field.
My question then is, how do I fix this situation? I tried to SSH in but it seems the SSH deamon isn't running.
