Description Seth Vidal 1999-11-05 16:06:30 UTC
throws the following error in .xsession-errors

cannot set permissions to 700 on


it appears to be trying to open this as a socket and set it
user access only.
it fails.

The home drives on this system are nfs mounted but it does
not appear to be related to nfs.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-05 16:45:59 UTC
Actually, it probably is related to NFS. What sort of NFS
server are you trying to connect to?  The behavior of
sockets isn't specificed in NFSv2...
