I have recently upgraded from openssl-0.9.6g to 0.9.7 and am using openssh
3.5p1, and now I cant su to root.
I have rebuilt the box from scratch with the new version but still no luck.
In logs it has a line:
pam_stack[5988]: substack returned 7 (Authentication failure)

This is after user name is entered, after calling substack.
Somthing is broken and I've spent days looking for clues.
If anyone can help or point me in the right direction it would be a great
