Problem with Cyradm

I wonder if someone could help me with this. I'm running SuSE 9.0 with 
cyrus-sasl-2.1.15-57 installed from rpm's and working, no problem with
saslpasswd2 can create users.

My problem is this. I installed cyrus-imapd-2.2.3 from source. It seems
to work, but when I try to log in with cyradm I get this error.

Login failed: user not found at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/i586-linux-thread-multi/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as cyrus

And this is what I have in my log file.

Feb 24 21:27:38 nicko master[27815]: about to exec /usr/cyrus/bin/imapd
Feb 24 21:27:38 nicko imap[27815]: executed

Feb 24 21:27:41 nicko imap[27815]: badlogin:
[] plaintext cyrus SASL(-13): user not found: checkpass

I would be very glad if someone could help me with this.
