I'm customizing a Debian (9.9) live image, unsquashing, chrooting, and squashing again. From there I use geniso to create my custom ISO.

The ISO boots but when it reaches the tty1 login, I can't login with any user.

In my chroot environment

  1. I create a password for root user. No cookie.
  2. I create another user. No cookie.
  3. I try autologin technique, system fails autologin. No cookie.
  4. I visudo. No cookie.

There's something about chroot that is beyond my grasp I know. But I welcome corrections, lessons, ideas and downvotes.
