Description andrew ducore 2004-04-25 20:37:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/85.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/85.7 Description of problem: When I attempt to log in as any user other than root, I get a dialog that states that my home directory is listed as /home/test (which is correct), but that the directory is not there (which is incorrect). The directory /home/test exists, and is owned by the test user. I was getting a similar problem when trying to log in on a TTY, but it went away and I have not been able to reproduce it there. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new user named <user-name> using /usr/bin/system-config-users 2. Log out 3. Attempt to log in as <user-name> Actual Results: (used "test2" as <user-name>) After entering the username and password, a dialog box appeared which said: ------- Your home directory is listed as: '/home/test2' but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the / (root) directory as your home directory? It is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe session. <NO> <YES> ------- Expected Results: The user should have been logged into a gnome-session. Additional info:

Comment 3 Chun-lin Wang 2004-07-14 16:40:11 UTC
Yes!! it still exists. After I upgrade from Fedora core 1 to core 2, the bug still exists. How should I do next solve the problem?
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-07-14 17:15:09 UTC
Is /home a local partition or being served over a network? Are you by any chance using an auto mounter like autofs?

Closing due to inactivity and lack of response.
