I find I cannot write to my home directory

seems related to this thing I've never seen before,
and don't know how I inadvertantly got it:

/dev/mapper/_home_mfischer.img on /home/mfischer type ext3 (rw)

How do I get rid of that and get back to an ordinary home

The real question is "How did it get this way in the first place"?

As root, you could try:

umount /home/mfischer

then see if you can log in as mfischer

This leaves you with the task of finding out who is mounting this.
Is there a line in /etc/fstab that mounts /dev/mapper/_home_mfischer.img
Have you set up ant automount stuff? I am not sure which service
used /dev/mapper

I found it... grrr.


somehow "use encrypted home dir" got checked... I certainly didn't
mean to. Is that a default nowadays?

Unchecking it got me fixed up right.
