I'm unable to create usable home directories for users. Using the adduser command gives me the following:
root@computer:~ # adduser newuser
Adding user `newuser'...
Adding new group `newuser' (1001).
Adding new user `newuser' (1001) with group `newuser'.
Creating home directory `/home/newuser'.
chown 1001:1001 /home/newuser: Operation not permitted
Removing directory `/home/newuser'
Removing user `newuser'.
Removing group `newuser'.
groupdel: group newuser does not exist
I can create new users, but not usable directories. If I create a directory in /home and try to change its owner or read/write/execute permissions, I'm told that the "operation [is] not permitted."
I had trouble creating users during installation
. Could someone please help me out?
