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


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

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

session required /lib/security/


session required /lib64/security/

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