Difference in log-in result

Hi All,

I’m new to Linux and beagles, so I followed the ‘get started’ to the point where I had cloud9 talking to my beagle and it looked just like I expected and worked as far as I could tell. This is great I have a list of directories and files and I’m in the ‘cloud9’ directory as per ‘get started’.

Now I get putty and log in (had to use IP address) I use the same user name and password.

I get the same prompt (debian@beaglebone) but I’m in in root directory, so I type ‘ls’ and find only the ‘bin’ directory and its empty!

I don’t understand whats different. the same IP is used for both. (its in the address bar of firefox).

As this is starting out with a new board and a new OS its steep right now (I use Arduino and it’s IDE). This is totally different.

I have used

Debian GNU/Linux 9 \n \l

BeagleBoard.org Debian Image 2018-07-15

A BBBlue Rev A2
My router provides DHCP
A Win 7 pc with ‘Putty 0.67’ and ‘Cloud9 3.1 5000’ with Firefox 61.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help at all, I don’t want to be stuck with cloud9.

Regards John.



and then you'll know where each location actually is on the root file system
