Java Unix Login Issue

Guys ..

I got my user ID created in a production system of my organisation.
the problem I got is my HOME directory in environment has been mis-spelt.

Like:

I should be logging into unix using ID: freakegs
My home directory should be : /users/freakygs
and echo $HOME should also give /users/freakygs

Instead its giving me an error:

Could not chdir to home directory users/freakysg: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.

I cant run my profile, or anything.. Smilie


Lemme know if i can solve this or should I catchup with the System Administrator...???

of course i don't have admin access and rights.... Smilie

Hi,
You should definetly talk to the sysadmin cause it involves modifying /etc/passwd ...
Have a nice day.
