Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17384
Location of home directories
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
Ftp, gdm, and piranaha have home directories of /home/ftp ... This
presents a problem for most sites with auto mounting of home directories.
For example I recieved the following error from a patch down load because
the home directory had been eclipsed by the automounter.

Subject: Results from Red Hat Update Agent
Update Agent Run Summary:
installing package piranha-gui-0.4.14-1 needs 1Kb on the /home filesystem
Some sort of error has occurred, aborting.
If you'll look at the pinstripe beta, the ftp directory
has been moved to /var/ftp (for example.) Similar things
have been done with the http directory.
