I just installed Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" and Ubuntu 11.10 on my MacBook Pro using these instructions: Creating a shared home partition between Linux and Mac OS X.
After changing the location of my home folder to the new location, it gives me the error in the title, and my username no longer appears in the login screen. Using the "Other" option with my username seems to make it try to log in, but the screen quickly flashes between blank and a shell before kicking me back to the login screen without notice.
I'm trying to share my home folder between Mac OS X and Ubuntu, using an hfsplus partition (unjournaled) between the two. The home partition seems to mount fine as
/home, and I am able to modify it under Ubuntu.
Below is the line I've added to fstab:
/dev/sda3 /home hfsplus defaults 0 1
I should also note that I changed my account's username and home directory location to match this, though I've double checked that and everything seems in order there...
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
Edit: It seems that the
/etc/passwd file didn't have my new home directory's location in it, so I changed that, and I am now able to log into my account, although I am still not listed in the login screen, and my username in the menu on the top right shows up as "[Invalid UTF-8]"...
