Description Oded Arbel 2007-07-30 12:38:53 EDT
Description of problem:
When using an external authentication method (for example - LDAP), then home
directories for users aren't created as part of the user creating process. Home
directories then need to be created either manually or by adding pam_mkhomedir
to the session section in /etc/pam.d/system-auth.

Enabling pam_mkhomedir should best be done automatically when needed, and as
authconfig is the tool used in Fedora to enable external authentication, then
its probably a good idea to have authconfig also automatically add the
pam_mkhomedir to the pam.d configuration when such authentication methods are
