What kind of system are you running? Your /home isn't assigned a device and isn't mounted.
Did you add the line with /home yourself? If so, remove it. If your home directory isn't under /home, then post the home directory field of your /etc/passwd file.

If /home is a directory of root (/) then add the acl option to the root partition. Without rebooting, you will need to mount the root partition manually with the `remount' option to change the mount options. Might as well reboot after correcting the /home line.
