I have a Jessie install that wont allow me to logon.
It boots up, presents the prompt, accepts the username and password, but just blinks and comes back to the login prompt.
It appears that
Bash is getting an error code from some part of the login process, which causes it to exit back to the parent process.
How can I trace this. I have had a look thru all the regular
rc files (there is only one user besides
root) but I can't see anything that might be causing it.
Because its happening inside
Bash, its NOT putting anything in the system logs.
Is there a way to start/verify logging deamons, and what can I use to see what, where or why
Bash is exiting after logging in.
I have access to the filesystem, so I can manually poke through it and make changes.
