   Linux FAQ > 7. Solutions to Common Miscellaneous Problems
Question:  7.13. System Only Allows Root Logins.
Answer:

You probably have some permission problems, or you have a file /etc/nologin.

In the latter case, put "rm -f /etc/nologin" in your /etc/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/* scripts.

Otherwise, check the permissions on your shell, and any file names that appear in error messages, and also the directories that contain these files, up to and including the root directory.
