"Home directory already exists. Please enter another home directory path."
I just installed Intrepid 64bit to a new partition in order to try it out before switching over from hardy.
When installing, I told the installer to import my settings from both chaz and jami, the user accounts from my hardy install. However, when logging into the new system, the user "jami" does not exist and cannot log in. I go to system->users and groups and add a user, but when I enter "jami" as the new user, it gives me this popup that says 'home directory already exists. Please enter another home directory'.
I don't want a new user with a new home directory, I want to enable my wife to have her own user account and use her existing home directory like in my old install. This should be straightforeward. I had thought that the 'import settings' wizard in the installer would have done that already, so I'm confused. What should I do?
