Re: [Freeipa-users] Could not update ICEauthority file /home/brad/.ICEauthority FreeIPA

You either don't have a home directory (/home/brad) or you've got a
SeLinux problem. Last week I've made a little F15 freeipa setup with the
default mkhomedir feature. The I had Selinux problems with ~/.Xautority
for remote X sessions. After some Googling and reading I found out that
there is another pam mkhomedit module (oddjob-mkhomedir). After installing
this package, removing users, removing machine out of freeipa realm and
reinstalling with

$ ipa-client-install --mkhomedir

everthing worked just fine. It seems that the default pam_makehomedit
module is not able to set correct SELinux permissions.
