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, Christopher Svanefalk On Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 12:42 AM, Patrick Dupre <pdupre@xxxxxxxxxx > wrote: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?

If it's a selinux problem, boot the distribution, mount the partition, and edit /etc/selinux/config. Change to
SELINUX=permissivethen reboot. Hopefully that will get you logged in so you can find the problem. I suggest a re-label.
