  I got time and read the log files. I found out that sshd keeps complianting about the permission of file /var/log/btmp.
The message read as "Excess permission or bad ownership on file /var/log/btmp."
After changing to 640, it stops complianting.

The LFS book does not specify it clearly and leave it as default(644).
