I have a home directory mounted from a file server (OpenFiler software), with an entry in the file
/etc/fstab It worked well with Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, and 11.04
The line in the
/etc/fstab file is similar to this:
192.168.0.100:/mnt/vg1/v1/users/user1 /home/user1 nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0
(I follow guidelines from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo )
After upgrading to 11.10, when trying to login, it returns me back to the login screen.
If I remove the entry in the fstab file, and therefore use a local home directory for that user, login works fine.
There are some other reports that suggest deleting the
.Xauthority file. I tried that and it didn't help.
I thought some files may be causing trouble, so I deleted all the .* files except for some that are obviously application specific (.dropbox, .mozilla, .thunderbird, etc). Then I copied the four files that Ubuntu places in the home directory of a new user.
Any suggestion ?
