This actually looks like an issue with your system setup.

It seems like you don't have permissions set up correctly for realtime processes to lock memory on your system. See this page for more information...

Specifically it is most likely you fall under the "Systems Using Pam" section, so check to see if the files exist first, save backups, etc.
