Create a separate home partition in Ubuntu

Well after my experience with the Video Card you would think I would be ready to walk away from the computer for the day, but then I had one other thing I wanted to do. When I initially installed Ubuntu Everything was on the same hard drive space, well having heard how Distro upgrades tend to break I decided that I wanted use a seperate partition for my home folder. So wanting a clean slate I just decided to back up and do a fresh install then create the partition. Everything on that side went pretty smooth as I followed Aysiu’s tutorial at his website. The one issue I did have is that after rebooting and Logging back In I received this error:

User’s $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default
sessin and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and
have 644 permissions. User’s $HOME directory must be owned by user and
not writable by other users

So I googled it on my hubbys computer and came up with THIS post. Since gnome wouldn’t load I did a ctrl+alt f1 and dropped to shell to run the commands found in the post. Then I did

shutdown -r now

To reboot and everything has been running fine since. So that’s the story of my adventure for the day…lol
