Question ,dmrc problem after moving /home partition to NTFS partition


Hi,

I just moved my /home partition to an NTFS one, and now I get this message on 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 believe the problem lies in my home folder being owned by root, rather than by my user (lyh). However, "chown lyh /home/lyh" does not work, as my home folder continues to be owned by root.

Please help!

Don't use an NTFS partition for your home directory. You can't change permissions or ownership.
