Gdm non-priviledged user login?

I followed the blfs book to install GDM- yesterday. Since there
is no pam installed on my system, I omit the --with-pam-prefix=/etc
option. After reboot, I can login using root account only. When I input
non-priviledged user name, gdm told me it's not a valid user. Then, I
setup autologin with a non-root user, it works. So, the problem is very
strange, why my gdm permit autologin of non-root user while refuse
normal login of the same user?
