Bug: Home directory for user dietpi

Hello all

There is a bug in the new dietpi 7:
After a new installation, there is no home directory for user dietpi.
Because of this i can not remote login and other things are also not working (xdesktop for example).
Can someone check please?

Best regards

Bug in the PREP script. Many thanks for reporting: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/4231
I’ll repack the images, luckily its nothing more to do than a mkdir -p /home/dietpi; cp -a /etc/skel/. /home/dietpi/; chown -R dietpi: /home/dietpi.

Perfect, thank you! :smiley:
FYI: It affects also the 32bit version.

most of impacted images should have been recreated in meantime

All done already. Although I didn’t flush the Cloudflare cache, so if someone still gets an image with this missing, report back and I’ll force a cache reset.

Tried and works perfect! Thx! :sunglasses:

Is this something that can be fixed with just the command you stated? or a sudo dietpi-update

The command should fix it, the images have just been fixed as well.

just go with mkdir -p /home/dietpi; cp -a /etc/skel/. /home/dietpi/; chown -R dietpi: /home/dietpi

Or reinstall from a new fresh downloaded image. :sunglasses:

bug still present into the DietPi_RPi-ARMv8-Buster.7z image.
no problem with the 32 bits DietPi_RPi-ARMv6-Buster.7z.

manual solution working.

Did you download a new fresh image?

downloaded images yesteday for the ARMv6 and today for the ARMv8.

Can you have a look to the RPi-ARMv8 image again. The one uploaded on 2021-03-26 13:21 is still missing the home directory for user dietpi.

images could have an os version or release date to help us figuring what we downloaded.

Looks like I missed that one. Just fixed, download updated and cache cleared.

on the download server you have the Last modified date, there you could see what time the image has been uploaded.


Thanks for the quick update.
I found useful to have a versioning info directly over the download image.

there are no real image versions. It’s always the DietPi version and this did not changed. Still 7.0.2
