I have a problem with using pam_mkhomedir.so to create home directories automatically. I am using Windows NIS server t authenticate windows users against SUSE machines… everything is ok except when I login to the KDE, it gives me an error massage “No write access to $HOME directory”.

Here is my /etc/pam.d/login


#%PAM-1.0
auth requisite pam_unix2.so nullok
auth required pam_securetty.so
auth required pam_nologin.so
#auth required pam_homecheck.so
auth required pam_env.so
auth required pam_mail.so
account required pam_unix2.so
password required pam_pwcheck.so nullok
password required pam_unix2.so nullok use_first_pass use_authtok
session required pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0077
#session sufficient pam_unix2.so none # debug or trace
session required pam_limits.so


Thanks for helping

What's the ownership and mode of the home directory that is created?

I haven't created any home directory. I am trying to create one for each user when they log in to the SUSE machine automatically.
