Thread: init level 3 login issues

  1. #1

    Default init level 3 login issues

    All,

    I am not sure if this issue has been discussed in the past (searches turned up zero relevant hits) so here goes. I am able to login as both root and a typical user when the system starts up at run level 5, however, I can't when the system fires up at either level 1 or 3. For both users, I always get invalid password errors. See https://pasteboard.co/IP1Sn14.jpg. Currently I am investigating in a VM, but the host also experiences the same issues. If this has been discussed, I do apologize and a link to the resolution would be appreciated.

    Tim

    Hi
    That would normally indicate numlock (not capslock from your image) is enabled in either multi-user (runlevel 3) or graphical (runlevel 5). Or a keyboard issue in a tty.....

    I have verified that it not either the numlock or caplock. I am intrigued by your tty reference. If there was an issue in that configuration, would it not also present itself in init 5 where the system is able to validate the password?

    Hi
    As a test if in the username you type the password it's all ok too?

    If in you GUI session if you open a terminal you can switch to root user, if you press ctrl+alt+F1 a tty should open, here you can login? press ctrl+alt+F7 or F8 to get back to the GUI session.

    Nothing special with the locale settings?

    Code:
    localectl status

    After some experimentation, I have found that if I remove numbers from the passwords that I can then log onto the system. I am also not using the extended number pad but the number keys above the normal letter keys. I have confirmed the keyboard setup in Yast as English US and the test entries appear correct.

    Hi
    That sounds like a keyboard mapping issue. If you change out with a different keyboard (if you can) does it start working?


    As root user run the following in a terminal from the GUI, then in a tty;

    Code:
    hwinfo --keyboard
    All the info the same?

    I wish I had another keyboard to try, but I don't. Here is what I get from the command:
    Code:
    15: PS/2 00.0: 10800 Keyboard                                   
      [Created at input.226]
      Unique ID: nLyy.+49ps10DtUF
      Hardware Class: keyboard
      Model: "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"
      Vendor: 0x0001 
      Device: 0x0001 "AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"
      Compatible to: int 0x0211 0x0001
      Device File: /dev/input/event0
      Device Number: char 13:64
      Driver Info #0:
        XkbRules: xfree86
        XkbModel: pc104
      Config Status: cfg=no, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
    To me, that seems as generic as it comes so no idea why the number keys are accepted.

    Hi
    This is a PS/2 keyboard, not USB..... and in the virtual machine or real hardware?

    Might be time for a bug report...?

    The keyboard is USB, but being presented as PS/2 via VMWare Workstation...which answers your second question. In this instance, it is a virtual machine.
    If I run the command on the host which is also openSUSE, I get:
    Code:
    workstation:/usr/bin # hwinfo --keyboard

    What is odd is that the host also experiences the same darn issue.
