redhat 5.2 console problem

redhat 5.2 console problem

Post by Jacek M. Holecze » Fri, 22 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I recently upgraded to RH5.2 and I suffer from the following problem.
My /etc/lilo.conf sets "vga=extended" and this works up to the moment when
from inside of the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
        # set the console font
is executed. In that moment the console is restored to 80x25 ( the
/sbin/setsysfont is a small shell script which internally calls
/usr/bin/setfont ).
I could simply comment this call to /sbin/setsysfont in the
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, but maybe it is needed ? Or maybe there is a more
sophisticated way to deal with this problem.
Thanks in advance,

1. after upgrading redhat 5.2 => 7.2 no console login?

    Howdy, I just upgraded a very old box from Redhat 5.2 to Redhat 7.2,
everything went great surprisingly except for one little caveat, I cant
login to the console with any of my accounts. I can sshd in, i can ftp, i
can pop, but I cannot login from the console. Does anyone have any idea??

Im pretty sure this has something to do with pam...
