I am new to Linux. I have created a test user account by modifying the /etc/passwd file, and included the correct path to the /homes/username. However, when I try to log in as the new account I get a warning indicating that there is no home directory for the user. Does the home directory have to be manually created? Is there a script that can be invoked to automate this for new accounts like Mac OS X Server's createhomedir command?
Thanks for the help!
