    mounting /tmp causes login failure

    Hi

    I have installed knoppix to my HD with the usual swap and root partitions. However, i would like for /tmp to be on a separate partition. I have created this partition, but when i mount it, the system will only allow 'root' to log in.

    Can anyone help me please

    Bit off topic here Andy. Did you work for M.B.S. Engineering in the 80's ?
