Summary0004018: live-build login bugs
DescriptionI built the .iso with --variant light and --variant lxde and put it on a thumbdrive per the instructions on the kali live build page. After booting to the graphical login screen. Entering the password toor returns as invalid. Switching to a cli with ctl-alt-f1 shows a root prompt meaning that kali has done auto login. running startx at root prompt returns command not found.
Steps To Reproduce./build.sh --distribution kali-rolling --variant lxde --verbose

Then per instructions on build page for a thumbdrive:

dd if=kali-linux-light-rolling-i386.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=512k
(manually use gparted to create /dev/sdc3)
cryptsetup --verbose --verify-passphrase luksFormat /dev/sdc3
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc3 my_usb
mkfs.ext3 -L persistence /dev/mapper/my_usb
e2label /dev/mapper/my_usb persistence
mkdir -p /mnt/my_usb
mount /dev/mapper/my_usb /mnt/my_usb
echo "/ union" > /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf
umount /dev/mapper/my_usb
cryptsetup luksClose /dev/mapper/my_usb

dd if=kali-linux-light-rolling-i386.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=512k

should be whatever the name of your .iso is.
