Issues using existing home volume under Silverblue

This is originally post at ask.fp.o .

When I mount my existing <home> to Silverblue, I got issues:

  • /usr/sbin missing in my PATH
  • toolbox cannot enter / create / remove

But the same <home> mounted under Fedora 34 is OK.

What should I check to fix this issue?


Are you using /var/home for Silverblue? Can you give us the exact error messages for your issues?

I am mounting the shared home to /var/home in Silverblue and /home in Fedora wks.

It turns out the uid / gid of the user I created for the different Fedora editions are not the same.

Once I changed the uid / gid and do a chown, it is working now.

Thank you.
