Re: [opensuse] how to change users home directory

$ su #change to root
# cd /home
# mv lynn lynn.old #save old home dir until space is needed
# ln -s /home2/lynn lynn # make /home2/lynn APPEAR to be /home/lynn
# and everything stays the same as if the
# user directory was never changed.
# this is generally the best way to
# move directories.

problem solved

But if I mv lynn, lynn isn't there to ln -s. Also, nothing in /home survives the nfs mount:-(

I see what you mean though.
