Hi, this is my issue:
I start up cygwin and do pwd, and this is my home directory.
But, I don't want it to be in /cygdrive/h. So, what gives? I've run the
mkpasswd command like so (while in my /home/<my name> directory):
mkpasswd -l -p "$(cygpath -H)" > /etc/passwd
At that point, I close my cygwin window and open it again... and same thing
when I run pwd. How do I make cygwin think and start in /home/<my name>?
I've even mucked with the /etc/passwd for my user account and STILL no
P.S.: If this message shows up twice, I didn't mean to, was having a
difficult time trying to post to the mailing list.
