login: root

Could not chdir to home directory /home/nsc: Permission denied /bin/bash: Permission denied Connection to 192.168.1.13 closed.

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:

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)

And that’s it, user is working!!!

      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.
