    I read you get this message quite frequently when adding a new user. fine. now 2 questions:

    1. on my system I added one new user but deleted it in the same session. now after restart I just can't login at all, except root. heeelp? I don't want the new user! I just want default normal user "tux" back & to have it starting as default user with autologin at best.. (like it was before)
    2. if this is not working, why not simply disable the feature of adding new users?

    1) boot with cd or stick and repair it or install new

    2) I think it will work in next version of SliTaz

    oh good.. for now I was not able to repair it by copying etc/skel to my home folder.. had to reinstall for now.. too bad I run in xorg trouble everytime I do so, but this time I finally figured it out myself how to do it.. so this must be the learning curve eceryone talks about .. :)

    It seems that skel does not contain all needed information or the owner/rights flags are not properly set automatically.
    I use a customized version of rootfs.gz to boot from grub directly (frugal install). I unpacked rootfs, made my changes (incl. setting up a new user and setting own passwords for root and user) and it runs smoothly.

    Before using "adduser" I copied /home/tux to /home/[user] though, so I had a running home directory. You shouldn´t forget to chown/chgrp (-R) this directory to [user] then, otherwise you won´t be able to login.
