Description Rumen Yotov 2007-07-03 12:58:25 UTC
After an upgrade to (Bug-183886 stabilization request) login fails.
Don't accept any user name (fails at 3-th attempt)
Can't post emerge --info data as i'm away of the computer in question (later).
The system is mostly stable with few ~x86.
On two other systems have masked -r1, all is good so far.
Might be an etc-update problem (mine) or some other error, but don't think so.
(-cracklib nls -nousuid pam -selinux -skey).
Will keep you informed.
Thanks. Rumen

Reproducible: Always

diff -Nau /usr/portage/sys-apps/shadow/files/login.pamd{,.1} <-- is the only change there. So yeah, pretty much a user error if you customized that file before. See the syslog for what's wrong.

Make also sure that there isn't an /etc/nologin file, or only root will be allowed to log in.
Comment 3 Rumen Yotov 2007-07-04 06:29:31 UTC

Thanks for this so quick response.
Fixed it by uncommenting pam_console in /etc/pam.d/login (new file here)
Written as a comment in the file - only problem might be that it's commented by default, so any user blindly updating will be locked out of his box :-)
Closing the Bug.
Regards. Rumen
