Still having issues with both Sabayon and /etc/skel. When I try to edit a sabayon profile I get this terminal printout.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/profilesdialog.py", line 342, in __edit_button_clicked
    session.start ()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/profilesdialog.py", line 129, in start
    self.temp_homedir = protosession.setup_shell_and_homedir (self.username)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/protosession.py", line 60, in setup_shell_and_homedir
    temp_homedir = usermod.create_temporary_homedir (pw.pw_uid, pw.pw_gid)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/usermod.py", line 64, in create_temporary_homedir
    copy_tree (SKEL_HOMEDIR, temp_homedir, uid, gid)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/usermod.py", line 58, in copy_tree
    copy_tree (src_path, dst_path, uid, gid)

    os.chown (dst_path, uid, gid)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/tmp/sabayon-temp-home-NwwxrC/.wine/dosdevices/c:'

Any ideas on troubleshooting this? Also /etc/skel sticks to a user I create locally, but not to one that has it's home directory created by pam_mkhomedir and is authenticated against AD. Thanks!

Subject: [K12OSN] machine attributes get changed after server reset
Hello List,

i am using Ubuntu Server 6.06 with the smbldap installer script from 
I use VMWare to run my test systems (Ubuntu server and Windows Domain 

After producing a power supply failure (stopping my Ubuntu and windows  
client by the stop button in vmware) and starting them up again i can  
see a delta/change in my ldap database:

Before Power failure:
uidNumber: 10000
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-2308582080-1758763575-3976210704-21000    
sambaPwdCanChange: 1201212116
sambaNTPassword: C880093E1682DA079892FF7FF2AEA911
sambaPwdLastSet: 1201212116

After Power failure:
uidNumber: 10005
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-2308582080-1758763575-3976210704-21010
sambaPwdCanChange: 1201260229
sambaNTPassword: 2446CE7E7D8B196756E40E80B5EC3A13
sambaPwdLastSet: 1201260229

I did not manually change those properties and i wonder who or why they  

The result is that my windows client can not log into the domain  
anymore. I have to remove it fro the domain and add it again.

Has anyone an idea why this is _automatically_ happening?
Why, who or what can change those machine attributes?
Do you need more infos?

Thanks, Mario
