Default login fails

It seems you might have broken it quite badly...

Someone might have a fix, but if I was in you place, I would use the system rescue feature to simply rescue all data on the HDD, and then simply do a clean install.

Best,

Can you still log into the normal tty:s? Try ctrl-alt-f6 for example.






No, I can just not login on the machine

When I boot from another installation and mount the volume, the

permission seems right.




Not sure exactly what is broken here...but running "ls -l /usr/bin |

grep login" *and see what it says. Possibly some permissions were not

set properly because of the failed update.




I cannot login, so, I cannot make a ls command.

I use to log in text mode.




Best,

Hello,



I tried to update a fedora 16 to 17. Unfortunately, the update

failed

very soon after the starting.

Then, no way to try again to update, the distribution was not

recognized.

Anyway, I was able to boot the distribution, but at the login,

after I

give a login name I get:

tty1: cant exec /bin/login permission denied



What are your recommendations?



Thank.

If it's a selinux problem, boot the distribution, mount the

partition, and edit /etc/selinux/config. *Change to

SELINUX=permissive



then reboot. *Hopefully that will get you logged in so you can find

the problem. *I suggest a re-label.

Patrick,
I you want help you're going to have give us more information other than
'It does not help!!'.


Did you get the selinux config file changed? Could you login after a
re-boot?


Bill
