strange issue can`t login by console

Post by otgooneo » 2015/07/03 07:52:07

I have CentOS 5.10 and I can`t login by console (directly connected monitor and keyboard) but SSH is ok. When I try to login console says nothing just flashes and again asks to login. If I try with wrong user/pass, console shows error that incorrect login. SSH works well with any correct user/pass. Any suggestion?

Things to try:
Can you login as another user?
Check /etc/securetty.
Run restorecon -R on /root
Run restorecon -R on /

Boot from rescue media and look at the logs on the installed system.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!
