login error: home directory supposedly doesn't exist
I use Mandrake 9.0 and Libranet and the latter has worked fine until this morning, but now every time I try to log in, I get a popup that says "Your home directory is listed as /home/myusername but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the root dir as your home dir? It is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe option". I have googled this error message or parts of it and found absolutely nothing that seems very relevant or helpful. The only thing that is different about Libranet from the last time I booted it is I copied over some directories from my Mandrake partition into my home directory (/home/jmelton) -- the one that the login screen error message says doesn't exist!
But I get the same error message regardless of which user I log in as, except root. I even tried creating a new user and then trying to log in as that user, and got the same error message. Anyone have any idea what I should do, short of reinstalling Libranet?[/i]
