No home directory at log in

No home directory at log in

Hi Folks,

The subject line says it all. I try loggin in as a user but I get the
following message:

        No directory : /home/username

I checked and this directory does exist. It also has the correct
permissions (rwxr_xr_x) as do all the directories in the path from the
root. I am at a loss to understand what is happening here. I suspect
this is more of a UNIX question than a unique problem with Linux.

The user account had been working till yesterday when I tried
installing the elm program from the slackware distribution. I had
previously installed it and it worked fine. But for some reason, this
time when I installed it this new problem cropped up. I am not sure if
there is any connection between the two.

Could some kind soul help me please

Thanks in advance,

with natd and ipfw firewall.
I've also setup the FreeBSD box to let teleworkers log in with FTP and

Now I would like to log FTP and telnet Log-in's from teleworkers who connect
to the machine from the internet.
I woul like to see the time and IP numer from which users Log-in.

I have looked at the /var/log/messages file but this only shows SU Login's.
