[clug] Can't login at all

Yesterday I did this in Debian: aptitude purge `deborphan --guess-all`

Not a terribly smart idea. Today I can't login. I can't even enter a
password, it just says "Authentication failed". Same behaviour on the
console or on gdm.

I can't find anything in /var/log/* about pam failures on login (I
presume this is a pam problem?). I tried reinstalling all the pam
modules (via a Knoppix boot and then chroot) but it still doesn't

Any ideas?
