Can not log in after update to OI b148
I just updated my Open Indiana machine from b147 to b148. After a reboot I can not login with my usual user or even root. I tried both the graphical login screen and remote login with ssh.
If I boot up my b147 enviroment the login works as it should.

Is the password rejected?
At the GRUB menu, press 'e' to edit the GRUB entry for oi_148. Highlight and delete the
splashimage line with 'd', and press 'e' to edit the
kernel line. Remove
,console=graphics and append
-s to the end of the line. Then press 'b' to boot. You will be prompted for a username and password. Try your username as well as root, and copy down any error messages.

This is what happens when I try single user mode without splashimage:

what you need here is a User with the root role associated, see /etc/user_attr. If you did an update try again and the problem persists, please check if you have an user with root role and try to login with it.
Also make sure that the password is not affected by not affected by a broken keymap, check if characters are inserted corretly by typing som characters as username.
