after running update and restart, manjaro won’t boot. I came across a post that has a solution ( i can’t post links but the title is “Wont Boot After Restart” ) in it it says to edit “pam.d” but I’m not sure how to navigate there.
for new user, you can copy partial url as _ttps://forum.manjaro.org/t/how-do-i-navigate-to-pam-d/18774
haha ok i will use that workaround in the future. when i type /etc/pam.d/ it just says :bash /etc/pam.d/ is a directory, and does nothing i need to add/remove some stuff as stated here _ttps://forum.manjaro.org/t/unstable-update-2020-08-22-pamac-mate-1-24-1-gcc-10-2-python-haskell/11233/3?u=stryker_000005
you use command “cd /etc/pam.d/”
This basic command line navigation, stands for change directory
I suggest taking a look at some linux basics …
such as my favorite zoo tutorial:
But basically … to ‘change directory’ you use
Then you can print working directory (see where you are)
You can also list what items are there
If you want to invoke a command on an item there, such as text editor nano…
You also didnt need to navigate there… you can always just feed a whole path to something. ie:
But … you need admin/root priveleges for system files … so you would need ‘sudo’. ie:
sudo nano /etc/pam.d/file1.txt
And more … but again … I suggest you look at some of the ‘getting started’ or ‘basics’ tutorials.
thanks, I’ve tried that, but I’m not sure on how to list all that stuff like they did in the article.
If you mean to list pacnew files the easiest is probably
PS … for more specifics on pacnews and suggestions on how to handle them see
System Maintenance - Manjaro Linux
Good tutorial around pacnew needed
Thanks. I typed “sudo nano /etc/pam.d/system-login” and got this output
auth required pam_shells.so auth requisite pam_nologin.so auth include system-auth account required pam_access.so account required pam_nologin.so account include system-auth password include system-auth session optional pam_loginuid.so session optional pam_keyinit.so force revoke session include system-auth session optional pam_motd.so motd=/etc/motd session optional pam_mail.so dir=/var/spool/mail standard quiet -session optional pam_systemd.so session required pam_env.so user_readenv=1
auth required pam_tally2.so
is missing in both places, would i just add
auth required pam_faillock.so
where pam_tally is supposed to be?
No… its only necessary to replace the deprecated module if its there.
Note … I saw some reference by one user who had a pam file in home though.
~/.pam_environment I believe it was. Might be worth checking there.
I warn anyone, ~/.pam_environment is not read by default since the version 1.4.0
It’s not common knowledge so I spread that around.
EDIT: it has to be enabled and it wasn’t in Arch maybe Manjaro has
PSA: [testing] pam-1.4.0 disables reading ~/.pam_environment by default : archlinux
pam_env: Change the default to not read the user .pam_environment file · linux-pam/linux-pam@f83fb5f · GitHub
If this is the case… hopefully someone edits the wiki with that info:
I can’t find user_readenv=1 anywhere so I guess it’s not enabled distrowise. My lazy buttox could just test it but I don’t like having to relogin.
Edit: maybe this could be split into a separate thread.
