Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120379
After creating a new user, the user can't login properly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
AlexL asked me to create a new user in order to investigate bug
#119666 and so I logged in as root (I couldn't use "su" or "sudo"
because of bug #119406 ) and used system-config-users to create a
user called "jbq".
I added the login name, full name, pass and also added the user to
the wheel group. I did no other changes to that pref panel.
It created the user and then I tried to relogin as jbq. But now it
wouldn't login, it would say that /home/jbq does not exist (it DOES
exist btw) and that I would need to use failsafe and the / folder as
jbq's home folder! The only DE I was able to boot was XFce.
Gnome/Default won't boot it would just spit me back to the login
In the meantime, the console 1, would give the following error
audit (1001405726.966.0: avc: denied (getattr) for pid=4110
exe=/bin/bash path=/home/jbq dev=hda2 ino=1305829
Honestly guys, the one bug brings me to the other. I only used Fedora
for a few hours the last few days and all I do is find more and more
important bugs. You might want to rename it as "alpha", cause this
thing ain't no beta. :(

Steps to Reproduce:

I think that the user-related problems you are seeing are SELinux
related. Did you install with SELinux in Active, Permissive, or

Oops, sorry Brent, I somehome missed your question.
I installed SELinux with the default found in Anaconda, whatever that
Yes, the default was on in test2. In test3, we've disabled SELinux by
default. The only way to enable it is to manually pass some boot time
options. The disabling of SELinux will make this problem go away.
This is working for me with the test3 trees. Please reopen this bug
report if you see the same behavior with test3.
