Fixing inability to login on the console after installing CentOS 64 bit

| 0 comments

Can’t login on the console in CentOS 64 bit?

It seems that CentOS sets up the wrong library for pam_limits.so.  Edit /etc/pam.d/login and change the following line:

session required /lib/security/pam_limits.so

to

session required /lib64/security/pam_limits.so

Oh btw, if you can’t log in on the console, you probably can by ssh.
