Greetings,

I have a rather small chroot based on busybox 1.29.3 with glibc 2.17, inside the chroot I have two files:
/ # cat /etc/passwd
root:x:0:0:root:/:/bin/bash
/ # cat /etc/group
root:x:0:

if I try to id root, I get this:
/ # id root
id: unknown user root

/bin/bash exists, here is the config: http://dpaste.com/3YXN1XE

any ideas why I'm getting this issue?

Thanks,

Dagg.
