ok, very good info. It seems there is nothing to delete!

So again, go init 3 (it does *not* matter which way you go there), login as root, and run:

      Code:
# ls -la /home/mh/test/

something *similar* like the lines below but with different numbers should appear:


michaa7, as my Jewish friends sometimes say: "You should live so long!"

Result:

root@debAboxbox:~# ls -la /home/mh/test/
ls: cannot access /home/mh/test/: No such file or directory

It would not hurt if you try to understand the meaning of "path" because, stupid me, this was an incident caused by copy and past. Should be your path, not mine, so run (this only proves the existence of this path on your system):
Code: [Select]
# ls -la /home/ubdino/

and if this shows the result similar to the one demonstrated in the previous posting you then run:
Code: [Select]
cp -ax /media/disk1part7/ubdino/. /home/ubdino/
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Keine Sorge. But please let's keep our identities clear here. You're the leader, I'm the "stupid me" (smile).

Done. Report showed 1GB of content, and displayed 29 lines.First line: "drwx------29 ubdino ubdino" (etc-etc)
So I thought that proved.
Perhaps useless info: I then did:
 [code]ls -la /home/ubdino/test/[code]
System reply: "ls: cannot access" .."No such file or directory"

I then did:
 [/code]cp -ax /media/disk1part7/ubdino/. /home/ubdino/ [code]

System took over five minutes to return a root prompt.
So. I think ... we now have two ubdino accounts on hdb.

And I think that's progress. Lead on, please.

Lead to what?  Old user home is transferred to new user home. So if you now login as ubdino, you should see all your files in your home. That's what you wanted to do. Mission accomplished.

^As for me, I would have booted a siduction liveCD and straighted all the disk partition stuff out from there.  I've done it before, and it certainly seems much easier.

Mission accomplished !

You now know my rig better than I do.

I was expecting one more step. So I hadn't even bothered to cycle back and open KDE.

It was a very pleasant surprise when I did open KDE after reading your message.

I've done a large dist-upgrade which went perfectly.
Everything is in order.

So take a victory lap.
And please accept my profuse thanks.
I'm very grateful.

As to the efficiency of your solution: putting aside a couple of mis-steps, I can't see how another solution could be simpler.
Well done !

Herzlichen Glückwunsch!
Gott sei Dank,
I mean, everyone having seen these "rm" commands in conjunction with "a couple of mis-steps" is happy your system survived :)
experiencing siduction runs better than my gentoo makes me know I know nothing
