All accounts, including root, are "expired". My error message is: login: pam_acct_mgmt(): user accound has expired Login Incorrect. Then, a bit later, I receive messages like the following: kernel: psmintr: out of sync (0008 != 0000) kernel: psmintr: discard a byte(1) On a side note, the message really does display "accound" instead of "account"; it's not a typo of mine. Searches on the following phrases within the questions and newbies mailing lists produced no leads for me to research: 'pam_acct_mgmt(): user accound has expired' 'pam_acct_mgmt():' 'psmintr' Regards, -- Barry C.

I am going to the KDE site and report this problem. It might be a bug of some sort. You might want to do the same if you have not all ready. As a side bar, in the master.passwd file, near the top, is an entry that includes: "Charlie &". Is it possible, or should I say, advisable to change that entry manually or just leave it as is? Thanks!
