I looked all over the forum and couldn't find a solution to this. I have LM13 XFCE installed with and encrypted home folder.
I recently changed my user password and root password. I did this on the terminal by:
- Code: Select all
Up until here everything was fine. However, after I rebooted I could no longer login. After looking at the logs I realized that the home folder was not been mounted. I was able to ssh in (or go to different tty) and do 'encryptfs-mount-private' to mount home folder and then I was able to log into Xfce desktop. But the change would not persist, after rebooting I was back to unmounted home.
I Googled a bit on how I could fix this but didn't find anything. I changed the user password to be the same old one and then home was getting mounted automatically again.
How can I change my user password without breaking the encrypted home folder mount?
