Probems with the Centos 6.3 DVD
I installed Centos 6.3 from the DVD that came bundled with the OSFY magazine. After booting up, it asks me to log in. I had given rajan.com as my computer name and a simple password. But it is not accepting this, showing instead a ‘Login error’. What should I do? Incidentally I am a 78-year old Linux OS fan.

ED: We are assuming that there was no error while installing the OS. The reasons that you could not log in could be many. I would suggest that you to try the following: 1. Double check your password. It should match with the one
that you have given at the time of installation. 2. Passwords are case sensitive. 3. Try logging in to any other user other than the super user, if
you have created one. 4. Log in to your terminal and remove the LD_PRELOAD YDrLDEOH Ln WKH EDsK_SrRfiOH, Ln FDsH LW Ls WKHrH. 5. If nothing works, then boot your system in single user mode and reset the super user password. Restart your system and try the new password. Hope this helps.
