After updating my CFLAGS and deciding to rebuild my system, I ran a emerge -e world.
After a while normal users could not login.
Code:

vader root # su - testuser
Unable to cd to "/home/testuser"

Problem was with the permissions on /
Code:

vader root # ls -ld /
drwxrws---  25 root root 576 May 12 12:25 /


I changed the permissions to 755 as was another gentoo box of mine.
SOLUTION:
Code:

vader root # chmod 755 /


Logins worked fine after this.

So, somehow an emerge -e world will change the / permissions.

I searched for a solution and found 2 threads talking about it but in each case they had to reinstall to fix it :(.

Credit for finding the permission problem comes from an Italian thread (and no, I don't read italian).

Duno which package caused it. I noticed that the perm on many directories were changed to 2770 (not all). This happend during a emerge -e world. The emerge did not stop. I just noticed other problems with the system and found the issue to be with dir perms.

i just had a similar problem. couldnt log on as user, used the searchfunction (i am just in as root :oops: ) and thankfully found this thread.

last thing i emerged yesterday was amule (1.2.8). also wxGTK was emerged as dependency. my / got permissions 644 after that 8O

//edit: ah, wait: i also did a system update prior to this, i just recall. i guess i didnt realize the problem at that state, because i was already logged on as a user. there was something updated yesterday, which for example tried to create those ".keep" files in every directory. i noticed this, because it failed creating .keep in /dev ;)
however - dunno which package that was. it was emerged yesterday and changed my / to 644 ;(

//edit again:
just looked through it, and the package in question IMHO is "baselayout"!
