Dear Infosoft,

As Puppy traditionally runs from root, $HOME is nearly always:
Code:
HOME=/root


With kind regards,
vovchik


Thanks for the info. I don't use Puppy Linux so I didn't know that.

Actually, $HOME and $home are two different things in PuppyLinux.

$HOME=/root, while $home="the drive your pupsave file is on" (may be /mnt/sda1 (ex. of hard drive) , /mnt/sdf3 (ex. of usb drive), or whatever.

BFN.

Sub_title: Version 0.4 fixes
 

Thanks for the fix, vovchik. I had to add it to the latest update from Infosoft. I did:
Code:
[ -d /usr/home ] && DEFAULT_HOME_DIR="/usr/home"
[ -d /home ] && DEFAULT_HOME_DIR="/home"
 DEFAULT_HOME_DIR="/root"


but now that I think about it, I am thinking that my syntax would be relevant to Puppy only, whereas your syntax would pertain to any distro? If so, then your syntax would work better for Infosoft since he is testing his program on Ubuntu and maybe a few other distros.

Infosoft, I agree with your thinking that it would be a good idea to run Racy in a virtual machine or even on a usb flash drive so that you can get the hang of Puppy and get up to speed...

Cheers,
Monsie
