I have 2 harddrives in my computer. One with the dist, and one with movies, mp3, projects and so on.
My username is steqve and I'd like to put my home-dir on the multimedia-disk.
So when I install a new dist, I can format the 1:st hdd, and still have all important data on disk 2. When I have installed a new dist, I insert disk 2 and symlink to the "home" directory there.
Can i symlink /home/steqve to /multimedia/home/steqve without any problems?
Mot too sure about the answer to your question, but I use mandrake and in kcontrol then paths these is an option to change the paths of certain locations and your home directory is one of them. I assume suse is similar. If not someone here must know the file to edit to do the same thing but I'm afraid I don't. Would this not do what you want to?
From memory, the HOME variable is populated from /etc/passwd. You could try just changing the entry in /etc/passwd if you wanted to manually move the files over. Alternatively, you could use:
I haven't tried this, but the following is from the man page for usermod (on Slackware 10.2):
