Can you still log into the normal tty:s? Try ctrl-alt-f6 for example.


No, I can just not login on the machine
When I boot from another installation and mount the volume, the
permission seems right.

Not sure exactly what is broken here...but running "ls -l /usr/bin |
grep login"  and see what it says. Possibly some permissions were not
set properly because of the failed update.

I cannot login, so, I cannot make a ls command.
I use to log in text mode.

Best,

Hello,

I tried to update a fedora 16 to 17. Unfortunately, the update
failed
very soon after the starting.
Then, no way to try again to update, the distribution was not
recognized.
Anyway, I was able to boot the distribution, but at the login,
after I
give a login name I get:
tty1: cant exec /bin/login permission denied

What are your recommendations?

Thank.

If it's a selinux problem, boot the distribution, mount the partition, and edit /etc/selinux/config. Change to
SELINUX=permissive

then reboot. Hopefully that will get you logged in so you can find the problem. I suggest a re-label.
