Fix: Following installation of Arch linux via chroot process, only login with root

I had this problem for a couple hours and couldn’t find a fix on google so I thought I would share it. I dont know enough about the linux login process to know why this worked but it did.

Here’s the fix:

This must have got screwed up as part of the chroot. It lead to these errors when i tried to login with any user other than root:

While attempting a logon as part of the normal boot process i would get a login followed by an immediate logoff. I only found out it was a permissions issue while using su – cedeon. Hope this helps peops… If any knowledgeable folk know why root has to be chmod 755 please let me know on twitter. Thanks
