comment Pulseaudio failed to create secure directory in nfs share
No, because the parent directory has no read/execute permission for pulse. Even the local root cannot access that dir.

Also the user pulseaudio is running as is "pulse", but thats only if it ever gets to run without choking on that error.

comment Pulseaudio failed to create secure directory in nfs share
Hi, I don't know what you meant with that second home directory. So I have tried to run the daemon in root. It doesn't seem to work. Also running pulseaudio -D in root doesn't make it work. When attempting to run pavucontrol, it hangs while attempting to connect. Also /etc/default/pulseaudio didn't exist, so I have created a new one. No user had a .pulse directory. Only .config/pulse so I have tried deleting that one, but it keeps coming back.

Once I get enough reputation, I will catch up on that. Thanks again on your efforts.

Damn the bounty has expired. I am really sorry. I was going to assign that to you, but it is too late now. I have totally overlooked it.

comment GDM hangs when home directory is inaccessible
Hey, you just found my recent bug report to suse. Nice to see that you found the ubuntu one too. I've posted this before I was so sure of it being a bug. A workaround would be nice, atm I am using lightdm from the suse repos, which afaik is a very old version, but it works fine. So that bug on ubuntu is either for the newer version or fixed already.

comment GDM hangs when home directory is inaccessible
I first suspected sss to be the problem as disabling sss or ldap would stop gdm from hanging as it would not be aware of the users with the inaccessible home-directory. They also mention GDM 2.29, that is before gnome-shell right? Here bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887937 they conclude that gnome-shell is the one crashing. So my bet would be that that bug is similar, but not related

So your second link is to suggest to use pam_mount in that specified order? I have already configured it that way. It works fine until somebody opens the GDM login screen while other users are still logged in (scenario: ssh or switch user) or when pam_mount fails to unmount at logout (which does happen quite frequently).

I really do appreciate your efforts. It feels much better now, that I am one step further to solving this.

Yup that redhat bug is exactly whats going on. Deleting that cache directory does indeed spawn gdm back to life. Nice find. Will look through that second link now.

I have looking at how to capture the output of set -x. It seems to be none of these scripts are executed before GDM starts hanging.

comment GDM hangs when home directory is inaccessible
It is weird, but I cannot exclude any of the users faces with Exclude although the debug and IncludeAll flags do work, but do not solve the problem. Debug doesn't show any related error messages. I don't see the point in removing references of $HOME as $HOME will only refer to the inaccessible user directories after the respective users have already logged in. GDM hangs before the users even get a chance to log in.

I've already tried disabling the user-list. It doesn't seem to be supported on OpenSUSE.
