Re: Trouble with local login

This seems to be a problem within the /bin/login program that chdirs into the home directory before switching the uid/gid. If the home directory is mounted with no root access (e.g. via nfs, options=squash_root), neither the .hushlogin nor the directory itself can be accessed. /bin/login should first change uid/gid and then access the resp. file/directory.
Sorry, only a further examination, no solution from me.
