Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am running a Centos 5 client against a Centos5 samba/ldap pdc. I have my home directory mapped via nfs, currently I have /home mounted manually as I haven't gotten automount to work yet. I can correctly authenticate from my client, see my home directories, and from a shell on the client I can su to my user account with no problems. When I try to login via the gui (xsession) I receive the following error:
"User's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by the user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users."
My .xsession-errors reads as follows:
-- ~/.xsession-errors --
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/sessreg -a -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "user1"
localuser:user1 being added to access control list
No profile for user 'user1' found
/bin/sh: /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients: No such file or directory
/bin/sh: line 0: exec: /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients: cannot execute: No such file or directory
I have checked permissions and they seem to be correct, and everything appears to be working correctly for shell based logins. Anyone had to deal with this or have an idea of how to troubleshoot the issue? Thanks in advance.
