I asked a very specific question and you didn't answer.
I wanted to verify that it was the home directory

according to /etc/passwd :

He is the only user on the machine (together with root of course)
Root, however, has no problem logging in, and as user root I can do
everything on the machine, But I don't trust myself as root, and want to
log in as normal user.
When logging in under non-X console
#id juk4
uid=1000(juk4) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),33(video)
on this kde3.5 machine:

What does this mean?
Are they not both on the same machine, the same /etc/passwd file?

No, they are not. Julien runs on 11.1 under KDE3.5. juk4 on 11.2 under
KDE4.? .

uid=1000(julien) gid=100(users) groups=16(dialout),33(video),100(users)

hope this will be of help to you.


You say

/home/juk4 is the home directory

but on a previous post you said

ls /mnt/b5/juk4/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc -l
-rw------- 1 julien users 226 May 31 10:28

so that's not under /home/juk4


He is the only user on the machine

but you give the ID result for two users.

If these are on different machines then the information you give is of
no use. We are trying to establish why you can't log in on one machine.

I'm trying to build a coherent image of your configuration and that's
not what I'm getting.

I've got two suse's on the same machine: the 11.1 which works without
problems, and on which - as user Julien - I can read the partitions where
user juk4 is installed (the 11.2 machine). But user juk4 only can work as a
nor-X user.
Sorry for the confusion.
The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of
meeting schedules is forgotten.
