can not open session because I modify the /etc/security/limits.conf

Hi Guys,

I tried to modify the file /etc/security/limits.conf and added two lines
* - nofile 655356553

What I want to do is to enlarge the maximum number of the file one process can open. However, after I reboot the computer, I can not login the system and got the message:
can not open session.

Anyone seen this problem before please? If yes, do you have any suggestion for this?

I am considering to use an installation disk to let the system to go in rescue mode, but I am not sure whether this could work.

Thanks for the advices.
