Re: howto change home path in /etc/passwd
but anyway , WHY SSH HAS TO READ /etc/passwd before reading options or $HOME/.ssh/config?????In Unix tradition, in order to get the value of $HOME one must obtain it
from /etc/passwd. ssh cannot read options in $HOME/.ssh/config until it
has resolved what $HOME is. It does so by getting it from /etc/passwd.
