Red Hat :: Unable To Login From Console F1 To F6. But Able To Login Into GUI In F7?

Apr 21, 2010

I am using rhel 5.3. I am using windows 2003 server 32-bit (the processor is 64 bit. AMD athlon x2). I have installed vmware and installed rhel5.3 64 bit on top of it. Now i am able to login as root from GUI mode (f7 console), but unable to login in text console from f1 to f6. I checked the /etc/securetty. But there was nothing unusual there. I think udev is causing this problem, since google said so. I cant find where the udev.rules file is located that google searches are taking about. How do i enable root login in f1-6 console.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Login / After Couple Seconds Returned To The Login Splash Screen?

Oct 10, 2010

I recently powered up my netbook... Selected my user log in, entered my password, and after a couple seconds I briefly see what looks to be the console and am returned to the login splash screen... I can Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get to the console and log in... but that is as far as I can get. This is the case for Gnome, Remix, and Remix 2D.

I can sudo apt-get (update, upgrade, etc) as well. It is the right password because if I type in a wrong one it presents an authentication failure dialog box.

How can I fix my log in screen and get to my desktop? I am Currently running 10.04.... waiting to get 10.10

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Login To IMac G4 - Graphical Login?

Sep 30, 2015

I have an iMac G4 that I installed Jessie on successfully. However, when it boots, one of the last messages is:

[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

Last line is something along the lines of:

fb: switching to nouveaufb from OFfb NVDA,NVMac

And then the text starts dissolving, and the entire screen cycles through different colors. I presume it is sitting at the graphical login prompt but it's not displaying correctly.

Based on some Google searches, it seems like I should be able to resolve this by editing /etc/modules but I can't get to that point. I have tried to get to a terminal using ctrl-alt-F1 through ctrl-alt-F12. No luck. I tried different yaboot options that were supposed to avoid using the video driver. No luck. How do I get the machine to boot straight to a regular text login instead of the X one?

This machine worked fine running Mac OS X this morning, so I don't think it's the hardware. What I can do.

Fedora :: Get The Console From Login Screen?

New clean install of Fedora 12 (my worst Linux experience so far, should have sticked with Fedora 9, it was old but it was stable, unlike this half-backed... whatever it is). Anyway, to the matter at hand (one of the many):How do I switch to the console from the graphical login screen? CTRL+ALT+Fn doesn't work, CTRL+ALT+Backspace doesn't kill X, it's a NIS machine with only root as local account

OpenSUSE :: Recover From Console Login?

Feb 18, 2011

I'm trying to debug a game with gdb. The game runs in fullscreen and causes a segmentation fault and then gives control back to gdb. However, since the game is in fullscreen, the gdb session can't be viewed. So, at this point I did CTRL-ALT-F6 which blanks the screen and gives me a console to login with. I do this and determine the PID of the game process and kill it. This should remove the x-window the game was using and leave the gdb session on my gnome-terminal. I then exit the console login, which leaves me at a console login prompt.

Now is the problem. How do I return back to my gnome-terminal gdb session, ie, how do I recover from my console login? Via email, somebody informed me that CTRL-ALT-F9 works for him, but it does not for me. In fact, I've tried CTRL-ALT-<every function key> and nothing works for me. The only thing for me to do at this point is to kill the power.

(BTW, the game must be debugged in fullscreen because the problem goes away when not in fullscreen.)

I'm running openSUSE 11.3 32-bit.

Ubuntu :: Can't Login In GUI After Console Rebooting

May 4, 2011

I"ve started using Ubuntu 11.04 with my Intel iMac. Today I was playing EDuke32 on Ubuntu then the game got freezed, so I tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 and it worked. I just logged in the console and typed;

sudo reboot

This actually didn't work, so;

/usr/bin/sudo /sbin/reboot

This worked.

After rebooting, I tried log in with the GUI login screen. However I just cannot login. After I input my password and press enter, login screen goes black out and comes back to the login screen. I also tried to log in from console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), and it worked. I can log in.

Debian :: Console Login Displayed Before DM Starts

Aug 4, 2015

New to Linux in the last year, used Debian Wheezy off and on for a time - trying to build a system up from a minimum net-install, just to learn more about it.

I have a niggling little problem - either of understanding or configuration. I started with the min install and installed X using apt-get or aptitude. Then installed JWM, which I would start from the console via startx. I really liked this setup, since it was simple and I knew what was going on. This was all on Wheezy.

After the upgrade to Jessie (via dist-upgrade), I would get messages popping up "on top of" the console login when I booted. Stuff like "b43-loading firmware …" would pop up on screen while I was typing my login/password. This was kind of disconcerting (seemed like something must be misconfigured) but didn't effect functionality at all.

Eventually I decided to try a display manager, since that would (I thought) avoid the whole console login process and thus the weird overlapping messages. I installed LightDM through aptitude and it works great, but the console login is still displayed first (briefly, maybe 3-4 seconds) before the LightDM greeter takes over the screen.

It is there just long enough to confuse the unwary, who start typing their login name only to have the screen replaced by the LightDM login screen and have to start over. Obviously this isn't a big deal (everything works fine), but since the whole point of this project was to understand, I'm very curious if this is normal behavior (videos I've seen of folks installing Debian seem to show boot messages jumping straight to the DM without showing:

Debian GNU/Linux … tty1
debian login:

or if I've neglected to configure something that would allow boot directly into LightDM or hide the text console while LightDM loads or … something.

General :: Troubleshooting - Cannot Login To Server Via SSH/Console

Apr 5, 2011

I got two computers with the exact same symptoms today: Both seem to be alive. They answer pings and they host virtual machines which are working. However, I cannot login via SSH. I get

$ ssh -v obelix
OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu6, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
debug1: Reading configuration data /home/mike/.ssh/config
debug1: Applying options for obelix


On the console I can switch the ttys and enter my login credentials. After that I see the GNU/Debian Linux welcome message an no prompt. The system seems to hang. I'm able to switch the tty again and login with the same result. (I tried that three times now and I start running out of ttys.) A search on the Internet suggested some ressoucre shortage. How could I release some resoucres than? How could I further investigate the situation before just trying a hard power off?

General :: Undo Login Setting From Console

Dec 26, 2010

I'm brand new to ubuntu and very green when it comes to Linux in general.I have recently installed Ubuntu Desktop version 10.10 for my media pc (a friend of mine showed me xbmc, awesome!). I modified my install so that I don't have to enter a password when turning it on.The problem seems to be that when I did the install I chose to encrypt my home directory. Now, since I don't enter a password, the machine spews a few errors and does nothing. I finally got it to boot to a console window however I don't know how to undo what I did from the gui.I'm basically trying to get to System > Admin > Login Window > Security without the gui and "check the box" to require a password on login.Any clue as to which config file this setting is stored in?

Ubuntu :: Missing Login Prompt In Console Mode?

Feb 1, 2010

After upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 I no longer get a login prompt when switching to console mode e.g. (CTRL+ALT)-F1. Instead i just get blinking cursor in the top left corner. Key strokes are printed the screen but otherwise nothing happens. I can switch back and forth between X and the console normally.

Where are the consoles configured, and is there a corresponding log somewhere i can check? Has anyone had similars problem?

My system is an old Amilo Pro laptop with a VIA 800 compatible chip-set.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 (Tty1) Console Login Prompt At Boot

Nov 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my 32gb flash drive. Just one large partition for the OS and about a gig for swap. Worked fine. Booted to USB on two computers and a laptop at home. Fine. Figured I'd try it on a work pc for the sake of testing a random computer. Well I stick the drive in, boot up, select usb from the boot menu and bam Ubuntu starts loading. I look away, it's cool ubuntu's loading. Well I turn back and it's a black screen. It's "<username>@whatever login:" or something close.

I use the username and password I created during installation and what I used to login to the computer like fifty million times while booted into Ubuntu. Well, invalid login. The first time I installed this OS on this drive I updated it through the update manager and rebooted. Next thing I know I type in my username and password, hit enter, and bam black screen, some stuff, then im asked to login again. Now after this next iteration I am faced with yet another faulty login screen. What is up with this OS?

My goal is to create a login like some of those appliances have. Instead of just getting a login prompt you can select several options like login, change network configuration, change password, stuff like that. How can I do this? Is there an Open Source tool to configure this?
