I am trying to add to ssd drives for storage. In the process of doing that, I tried to create a mountpoint inside my home directory. This was a mistake (or the way I did it was).
When I ram mount -a,
the desktop beneath the the terminal went black and I got a message saying something like "could not mkdir home/(redacted because its my name);Permission denied
It was late and so I just closed my computer from the terminal. This morning I went back to it and was able to log in fine. I finished hopefully adding the new disks to fstab, and ran mount -a again. I got that same error message about mkdir (although this time I just added the disks to home/ but I have no idea how to remove the previous mkdir attempt), screen when blank I tried rebooting,
I get the lofgn screen, but after accepting the password it goes back and reloads login screen. After 3 times of that, it quits.
I can tty, and when trying to log in,I get --(my name): /home/(my name): change directory failed: no such file or directory
Logging in with home = “/”
then a prompt [name /}$
How can I fix this? I know I need to undo that mkdir attempt but I don’t know how.
Edit: I am using kde, I cant provide the usual info because I cant access the computer in question.
