- Subject: how does cygwin see what user I am in windows?
I have some questions about how cygwin determines what user I am logged
in as on my Win2000 machine.
I have installed cygwin on my Win2000 machine and I am logged on that
one as DOMAIN/userx. DOMAIN/userx is not a local user for my machine but
a user in the domain DOMAIN. Now when I start cygwin 'id -un' reports
that my username is Administrator and creates a home directory for me
named /home/Administrator. That's not what I want. I want /home/userx as
my home directory. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
