I'm trying to set up a laptop with RH 8 where most non-root users will have their home directory in /mnt/zip, and EXTREMELY limited access to the rest of the system, and /etc/profile will be set up such that logins will be unsuccessful unless a Zip disk is in the drive.
However, login attempts as any user with /mnt/zip as his/her home directory fails with the following error dialog:
Could not resolve the address "xml:readwrite:/mnt/zip/.gconf" in the configuration file "/etc/gconf/2/path": Failed to create or open '/mnt/zip/.gconf-xml-backend.lock/ior'
, and here are the contents of the resultant .xsession_errors file:
Could not open lock directory for xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory to remove locks: No such file or directory
Could not open lock directory for xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults to remove locks: No such file or directory
Failed to unlink lock file /mnt/zip/.gconfd/lock/ior: No such file or directory
gconf-sanity-check-2 did not pass, logging back out
