Recent patch breaks ecryptfs
A quick note to opensuse users about ecryptfs. A recent patch to 12.3 caused ecryptfs to stop working. The patch messed up the pam configuration.
If you experience this, then after login you can use
to mount your Private directory. That’s a temporary fix for one session. If you use ecryptfs for your home directory, that might not solve your problem.
For a more permanent fix, login as root, and run
# pam-config -a --ecryptfs
which will fix the pam configuration.
