PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/ CentOS6 is solved

July 12, 2012

Whenever I login to my CentOS6 dedicated server my logs say

[prettify] su: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/ /lib64/security/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Jul 12 13:11:07 CentOS-55-64-minimal su: PAM adding faulty module: /lib64/security/ [/prettify]

The thing about PAM is that it is tons of modules. Now fprintd is nothing but figerprint module. This on a so called CentOS minimal install.

Just disable it, and you’ll be fine.

authconfig --disablefingerprint --update
