I'm not sure if there were some other updates that I finally hit when

I just upgraded to the 2.6.37-rc2 kernel running on factory and
everything seems to boot ok, except I can't log in properly. The
prompt on the console comes up and it lets me put my user and password
in. It acts like it accepts it (which I think it does), but gives me
this error:

Cannot make/remove an entry for the specified session

When I booted to init=/bin/bash I looked at the logs

(/var/log/messages/) and found this error:
Are you running SysVinit or systemd?

pam_loginuid(login:session):set_loginuid failed

I saw this with systemd but could not point out the problem. If I login
using kdm, it fails but if I login first at the console it seems to be

I see the following error message:
Nov 22 10:51:14 byrd login[2312]: pam_loginuid(login:session): Cannot
open /proc/self/loginuid: Read-only file system

That sounds like a kernel bug or mount problem, not sure. Nothing
PAM can do here.

Any suggestions on how to debug this? It's impossible to log in at this point.

Nov 22 10:51:14 byrd login[2312]: pam_loginuid(login:session):
set_loginuid failed Nov 22 10:51:14 byrd login[2312]:
pam_systemd(login:session): Moving new user session for tux into control
group /user/tux/7c. Nov 22 10:51:14 byrd login[2312]: Cannot make/remove
an entry for the specified session

From whom is the last message coming? It's not login itself.

No idea,
