Apparently, as a result of having tried to change the group to which my wife belongs (through chown) in her computer (aptosid apate KDE dist-upgraded four days ago), at boot she is not able to enter to X. This warning appears:

      Quote:
Cannot enter home directory Using /


And then:

      Quote:
Kstartupconfig4 does not exist or failes. The error code is 3. Check your installation.

Any advice?

Regards.

It is probably permissions on her home. Can you post

      Code:

ls -l /home


Also, chown does not change groups, it changes permissions... Did you want adduser or usermod/groupmod?

It might be helpful to post what you wanted to do and commands you've used. Perhaps also

      Code:

cat /etc/passwd | grep <your wife's username>


and

      Code:

ls -ln /home

It was, effectively, a permission issue. This was my first idea; I checked /home/her_directory, but I've not been able to see that all files and directories beneath it had also been changed. I'm beating my head against the keyboard.

Thanks for your quick answer. And sorry Embarassed for the too simple (stupid?) question.

It's a good thing to make sure ALL the files and folders in the home dir are owned by the user
