I have an extreme problem. I have a computer that runs crunchbang. I added a program called pam_usb onto it. I, being me, failed at setting it up. I am now logged out of my computer. I have managed to reach a terminal by editing the grub startup that allows me to edit thing without the password. I have no idea what to do now. I need to remove pam_usb. Please help me.
Salutation twin! welcome to the forums , glad you are flying #! with us
I am not quite sure which GRUB startup , you mean GRUB menu entry ! if that what you mean .. then from that menu choose recovery mode , from the next menu select > Drop to a root shell .
you can remove the tool with this command :
apt-get remove --purge libpam-usb pamusb-tools

I was able to uninstall it but it still comes up with the error "AUTHENTICATION failed".
To get it working you had to add an entry to that file. Something like
auth sufficient pam_usb.so
You need to remove that line, since you removed the package containing pam_usb.so
I am using pam_usb on debian/sid without problems.
Its gotten alot worse I got my brother to try and he deleted some files. Now when I get to the login screen It pops up saying AUTHENTICATION failed without me typing anything in. This is not going well.
then , you might need to re-install it and follow xaos52 suggestion !
here is the right source for it :
