My initial HOME var was:
$ echo $HOME
$ export HOME=/home/foo
Now it works but I need to add this to a startup script or something.
Is your username foo?
You said you use a W2K machine, so :
- Right-click on "My computer" and select "Properties"
- Go to "Advanced" and "Environment variables"
- There, you can set user and system variables; In the
user section, add HOME C:\cygwin\home\foo.
The names i mentioned are some backward translations of
the one i found on me own French W2K version, so they
can slightly differ in reality.
