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):
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:
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
Expected Results: The user should have been logged into a gnome-session.
Is this still happening with Fedora Core 2 final ?
No, it appears to have been fixed. Thanks!
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?
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.
