Check your logs! They should at least give you an indication what is
wrong. My hunch is that you might have had a modified pam file
in /etc/pam.d, if that is the case shadow nor Linux-PAM will update that
file. Does lvu install shadow and lvu install Linux-PAM list any files
in /etc/pam.d? 

If they do, please tell is which ones. If it doesn't that is your issue.
You need to manually replace the pam.d files or remove them
from /etc/pam.d and reinstall shadow and Linux-PAM.
