Authentication problem

I tried to open another session on tty2, but my password wasn’t accepted. I rebooted and now I can’t login to my system. I have chrooted into the system from a live image and passwd’d both root and user accounts, logged out, fully unmounted the system disk and rebooted, but still can’t login. Has anything changed today. First clutch of updates in a while today.

Look at the update announcements or similar recent threads for PAM and pacnews.
Check with pacdiff -o … I bet you have some in /etc/pam.d
