Description David Highley 2000-09-09 19:13:31 UTC
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.
