Description Enrico Scholz 2008-06-15 09:21:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Please provide a way to 

a) disable the user_home_dir_t magic completely (homedirs on my
   machines are either NFS mounted, or there are no homedirs at
   all), or

b) filter-out certain accounts; the current heuristic (/sbin/nologin
   shell or uid < 500) does not suffice.

I have several system-accounts which require a regular shell (e.g. because
they start jobs through ~/.ssh/authorized_keys). Currently, these accounts
are handled like normal users and filesystem is completely mislabeled
(e.g. /etc and /usr/share are user_home_dir_t).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
