“User’s $HOME/.dmrc” file is being ignored.
hey this is the first time i am posting here,
I got the following problem after upgrading my rhel from 4 to 5,at the login...
“User’s $HOME/.dmrc” file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permission. User $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users
i tried finding solution, one suggested to run the following on ComLine,
chmod 644 ~/.dmrc
>>> but got following msg when tried it...
chmod: cannot access `/home/<user_name>/.dmrc': No such file or directory
to no surprises i got no '.dmrc' file in my home directory...
Have you tried creating the file?
the code did create the .dmrc file, but how does it help in solving the problem...
I solved the problem by running the follwing...
chown <myusername> /home/<myusername>
chmod 700 /home/<myusername>
the msg is not coming anymore at the login...
Thanks for your reply, time and support...
Will get back in case of any other problem...
Thanks that really savd me from having to reinstall ubuntu.

--On the other hand when i try to find /.dmrc file i could not find it out.
---There is a file named oracle in my home path. I checked sub-folders. How can i exactly where it is?
