Booting into single-user mode doesn't require a "su". You are probably not booting into single-user mode. Interrupt the boot loader by pressing SPACE at the prompt that says: Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt Then enter single-user mode by: boot -s When the single-user mode shell starts, check your filesystems and mount them as read-write: # adjkerntz -i # swapon -a # fsck -p # mount -u / # mount -a Try to locate the file that fires up kdm (it's probably /etc/ttys, but I don't use KDE so I might be wrong about this). Disable kdm and exit the single-user mode shell. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
