i accidentally gave a wrong passwd when trying to su and tried to break the operation doing Crtl+C...eversince when i try to su i get the following
Code:
> su -
Password:
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'FTMP_FILE' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'ENV_ROOTPATH' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'PASS_MIN_LEN' (notify administrator)
configuration error - unknown item 'CHFN_AUTH' (notify administrator)
it does change to the superuser so it's not a problem of trying to su...what do the above messages mean?? anything i should clear in some cache or something?? what else?? thanks in advance...

Do you have any config files needing updating? iirc, you get that if you update pam/shadow and don't update the config files.
