Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2013-10-08 14:38:03 CEST
vsmagent used to check that the home directory was present, but this doesn't work where root isn't allowed to read/search ~/.. (SELinux, NFS root_squash, etc). We need to do this as the user, so tl-xinit is the first place we can reliably check this. What tl-xinit should do if there's no home directory is something to consider as well.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2013-10-15 10:33:26 CEST
Remember to consider cases with Kerberos (e.g. NFS, AFS) where we might not be able to access the home dir before kinit.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2018-03-20 13:30:53 CET
We don't see why we need to check this, so closing this.
