Linux 2.6 - man page for pam_mkhomedir (linux section 8)

PAM_MKHOMEDIR(8)			 Linux-PAM Manual			 PAM_MKHOMEDIR(8)

NAME
       pam_mkhomedir - PAM module to create users home directory

SYNOPSIS
       pam_mkhomedir.so [silent] [umask=mode] [skel=skeldir]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_mkhomedir PAM module will create a users home directory if it does not exist when
       the session begins. This allows users to be present in central database (such as NIS,
       kerberos or LDAP) without using a distributed file system or pre-creating a large number
       of directories. The skeleton directory (usually /etc/skel/) is used to copy default files
       and also sets a umask for the creation.

       The new users home directory will not be removed after logout of the user.

OPTIONS
       silent

       umask=mask
