after creating lxc container, I wasn’t able to connect to it as a simple user. Also couldn’t change to simple user using “su”.
All I got was an error:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/nsc: Permission denied /bin/bash: Permission denied Connection to 192.168.1.13 closed.
All permissions of home directory were correct, as to be 100% sure, deleted user and created again. Still the same problem.
The problem was / permissions.
It was 700, so simple user couldn’t change to any directory.
Small fix to make it working (with root user)
chmod 755 /
And that’s it, user is working!!!

excellent! it really works!
how can i fix it on this?:
~ # mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type squashfs (ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nodiratime)
ramfs on /var type ramfs (rw)
ramfs on /etc type ramfs (rw)
isn’t that live cd ?
everything should be normal in it.
If not, paste Your error message, also permissions and owners of all directories to that users home directory.
finally after hours – its that simple..thank you!!!
Thank you for your information it’s solved.
