Probems with the Cen­tos 6.3 DVD

OpenSource For You - - YOU SAID IT -

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 ra­ 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. If the prob­lem still per­sists, you can reach us at os­[email protected]­
