- Subject: Cygwin 1.7 on a FLASH Drive
Yes, I've read the FAQ on making Cygwin portable :-)
I'd like to have a complete Cygwin environment on a FLASH
drive, but of course using that drive to compile stuff in
my HOME directory will be awfully slow.
Is there a way to create a symlink of a directory on a local
hard drive to the cygwin /home/username/ directory?
Are there any features in 1.7 that will make a portable
cygwin easier to maintain?
