Oh crap did that screw things up. It deleted about a dozen packages. Now
whenever i try and log in I get "unable to authenticate" for EVERY user
(including root) on the box.
boot it up in single user mode and see if you can get in and/or booting
It should have removed those packages, if the transaction was where you
claim then those were just extras left hanging around.
Then again there are lots of cases where simply finishing out the
removal portion of the transaction isn't enough.
