Automount /home directory problem
I work at a small, private school where I have begun installing FC6 on the computers used by the students. I am using gnome as the desktop environment, and NIS to distribute user information. I also want to use a centralized /home directory to allow students to use any computer. I have autofs set up, and the remote directory is automounted when logging in using a text console. But when users log in using the gnome graphical login screen, the /home directory is not automounted. The system warns that the user's home directory "does not appear to exist." If I log in in text mode, the automount is apparently triggered, and subsequent graphical logins work perfectly.
The relevant line in my auto.master file is:
/home /etc/auto.home --timeout 600
And my auto.home file reads:
* -fstype=nfs,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid, tcp \
I am fairly new to linux, and this problem has me baffled. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you!
