Log in to the system in recovery mode, it will ask you for a root password only.
Try to change your password:
Thanks for the rapid and definitive response. I already tried something similar without success, so I want to be sure I understand you correctly.
I should mention that the Sparky installation asks first for the user's full name, then the user name, which is the same as my user name on the forum. However: The login screen presents my full name, for some reason.
So when you suggest:
I am going to type
passwd + my full name
which is what the login screen already shows (or I could try logging in as dhinds).
Then I am going to type the new password
And then retype it.
But that is what I already tried, without success. (I rebooted and the same thing happened].
Then reboot and try to log in as a normal user.
If it does not work, log in in recovery mode again and create a new user:
That I did not try. I logged in as root and tried to do that from the Control Panel, but couldn't.
Create an user nick different then you have now and reboot.
Let me know is any change.
Alright, I'll do that and get back to you. (And if I didn't understand you correctly, please let me know).
