Package: live-config
Version: 5.20190415
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When the package 'libnss-systemd' is included in a debian-live image,
all attempts to boot the image fail, hanging forever at a particular
point in the boot process. The following message appears in the
console (all on one line), with the kinetic red "cylon" effect on the
left, and a time counter counting up towards infinity on the right:

``[ ***   ] A start job is running for live-config contains the
components that configure a live system during the boot process
(late userspace). (10min 1s / no limit)''

If it matters: I build my debian-live images with 'live-build', and
I include all Standard priority packages with the one-line package
list macro "! Packages Priority standard". In order to work around
this hanging-boot problem, I have been blocking the 'libnss-systemd'
package from my debian-live images via apt pinning.

I have tried adding "live-config.debug" to the boot command
line, but no additional useful information appears in the console.
And, furthermore, I cannot access the debug logs in the live
system, since tty consoles are not yet available at the point that
the live-config service hangs the boot sequence.

I have tried booting in both legacy/BIOS mode and in UEFI mode
(with secure boot disabled), and the behaviour is the always the
same: hanging boot.

I maintain a number of debian-live build recipes in salsa. The
following one can be used to create an ISO image that exhibits the
hanging boot problem (just remove the pin in 'config/apt/preferences'
before running the 'make.sh' script):


Best regards,
