i have having a terrible time getting Yoper to leave folder setting alone and adding users does not work properly for me (i'm using the kuser button in yoper conf).
i have gotten around some of the problems such as:
vmware won't start because permissions on /tmp/user-vmware keep getting changed from drwx---- to drwxrwxrwx every time i reboot. i solved it by making an icon for vmware on the desktop and prefacing the vmware command like this: >chmod 700 /tmp/user-vmware | vmware.
but this is a work around. i do not understand why the permissions keep getting changed, and what is changing them.
furthermore, when i try to add users, their name does not show up on the logon screen, and if it does, i get a lot of errors at startup (usually related to improper permissions on the new users /home/directory and subdirectories and files.
is there a better way to add users? i guess i'll try to find the command-line for adding a user. perhaps the problem is kde3.3 and kuser app.
i think i found part of the problem, and it may affect other posts i have. Yoper does not seem able to get a grub installation right to save it's life.
seems that it is not mounting my /boot partition during installation, but instead has writtine a /boot directory in my / partition. since many attempted settings may have been affected by this, i am reinstalling and renaming /boot directory and mounting /boot partition as /boot in fstab right after installation.
if this resolves the problem, i'll post here. i can't imagine it could make things worse ;-). i'll keep you posted.
