I have a big problem right now. I just restarted correctly my computer after a long period and something really weird happened to me
First, the authentication page to put my user name and password became a sort of console window and not the usual welcome page.
Then Fedora keep asking me every three seconds to enter my password for every action I do
So in order to fix this, I upgrade my Fedora 32 to Fedora 33 hoping that would fix it. Well… it didn’t.
After several rebbots, I now face another problem, now fedora asks me for an “Administrateur” (yeah, I’m french) password for an admin account I never created and so never gave a password to
I’m now no longer part of my own sudoer group and the only way I could go back seems if I could enter that “administrator” session and grant myself root privileges again. But I don’t know that password and I’m not even sure it even exist or even if that “Administrateur” account exist to begin with.
Is there another way to regain root privileges or is there a default admin password so that I can solve my problem ?
Thanks in advance, I have no idea what to do
Also, here is an example of what’s popping every 5 seconds
Looking at the image posted, I understand that now you are able to log in in the system with your user. It seems that who is asking for the Administrator password is this PC/SC daemon. As far as I know it is related to smart card system.
BTW, are you able to open the terminal?
THANKS SO MUCH ! The autorelabel worked, now I have access to my session again.
Now back to the start, I still got those authentification pop-up coming up, but that’s at least that done.
The pop-up always says “authentification is required to access PC/SC daemon” every time I try to do something.
Also, something kinda weird that might be connected, every time I boot the PC on fedora, the start screen isn’t completely graphical, it looks like a mix between console and graphic and every time I try to connect the first time, it crashes and log me out. Then every second time, I have no problem logging in but then there are like 7 pop-ups asking my password and messages like the “authentification is required to access PC/SC daemon”
