libpam_misc.so.0 missing ?


..very odd, whenever i try to do an action that requires su identification i get complaints about the system not being able to find that lib. i can't relogin using the ctrl-alt-fx consoles, but loging in as root in the gdm login screen works ....quite honestly, i'm baffled ...

libpam_misc.so.0 is provided by the pam package. Possibly libpam_misc.so.0 is a symbolic link to the latest version of libpam_misc.so. You can list all of your installed packages with:

rpm -qa | sort | less

If pam is installed then you can list all of the files provided by pam with:

rpm -ql pam

If pam provides libpam_misc.so.0 then go to the directory where libpam_misc.so.0 is installed and see if it is really there. If libpam_misc.so.0 exists and is a symbolic link then check to see if the target file exists in the proper place.

P.S. If everything is in proper order in the pam dynamic library then maybe the dynamic load library list is broken. You can try running the ldconfig command to straighten it out:

ldconfig
shutdown -r now
