I recently installed Fedora 17 on an Inspiron 530 desktop machine. The installation went well, and I was able to use the system; however, after logging out I was not able to login again, because the system would not accept my password.

I repeated the entire process three times with the same result.

boot into single target mode modifying kernel parameters on grub. When you are booted and a got a shell as root change the password and update the system.

yum -y update
