Recently I created an encrypted filesystem (
crypto_LUKS) that serves as $HOME for just one particular user (i.e. I mount it as
/home/pduck). I also added an appropriate entry in
/etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml so that the partition gets automatically decrypted and mounted when the user logs in (and unmounted when he logs off). Works great.
Because the $HOME is a filesystem on its own, the user has a
lost+found directory owned by root:root in it. I know that deleting the directory is a bad idea but many commands (e.g.
find) complain about having no access. That annoys me.
Out of curiosity I removed the directory and recreated it with
sudo). Now the directory is owned by pduck:pduck. Is that ok or is it crucial that the directory is owned by root:root?
