Whem I shut my machine down last night after a tweaking seesion with
AnotherLevel every thing was running fine. This morning when I tried to
login as the user "me" I got the following error:
No directory /home/me!
It flashes on the screen very quickly and returns to the login prompt.
I can still login as root no problem, and the /home/me directory is
still there. I know that the ! after the directory name is the key, but
I don't know what it means. I first thought that the directory had been
locked somehow, in the fashion of a lock file. But those lock files
have the ! in front of the file name (for example !lock in the netscape
directory when netscape is running.) I did a man search for lock, but
that was not fruitful. I am at a loss. I have to repartition this
drive anyway, so I will just backup my scripts and rc's and reinstall,
but I still want to know *WHAT IT MEANS!!!* Thanks for you help!
