Change cygwin home


Howdy friends,

I don’t know why but some machines that I use and install cygwin the home is not set automatically to my windows home.

Here is the simple solution:

* edit /etc/passwd
* find the home directory something like: /home/yourname
* set your desire home
* restart your shell

Be happy!
