[lfs-support] Unable to login

I build LFS 7.4 from the book. It boots all-right but I cannot login:

login: root
password: xxxxxx
crypt: Invalid argument

Trying another user fails too.

I double checked inittab and the shadow-build, but found no faults.
The same goes for the kernel-config file.

What can be the reason of the failing login?
