Description P Jones 2002-08-04 12:17:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020724

Description of problem:
I have /home a link to a nfs-mounted home directory elsewhere (/remote/home,
autofs is controling /remote ), which was presumably not mounted durring the
install.  /home was replaces with a perfectly normal directory (quite empty, I
might add) Same happened to 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Um... install 7.3
2.set up home to point to a autofs remote mount
4.fail to log in because your $HOME isn't there

Bah! to finish what I was saying:
Same happened to... /usr/local/games, but I thought I would write /home up :)
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-05 11:34:18 EDT
Jeremy this is the expected behavior correct?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-05 14:57:49 EDT
Yes, /home is a directory in the filesystem package and so gets replaced as such
when filesystem gets upgraded
