Yes, I did pwconv, groconv and passwd root.

Yes, I does contain that line.

Yes Gerard, my /etc/shadow has something similar as well.
I also created a user while in chroot and saw its reference at
/etc/passwd and /etc/shadow.
I also want to inform this( if its related or not): while booting up
the lfs is prompting me to enter the run level
Enter Run Level:
I enter 3 and it proceeds and then comes this login problem.
I am willing to try further suggestions.
