I just fooled around with CUDA on my system for the first time, and in the process I got the message "Loading from Wolfram Research server" and it appears that a *lot* of stuff was downloaded. As far as I can tell it went into my *home* directory, into /home/mike/.Mathematica/ Paclets. My .Mathematica directory is now, by far, the biggest thing in my whole directory structure. I don't understand why this stuff didn't go into /usr/local/Wolfram. Now this huge amount of stuff, is going to get backed up every time I back up my personal directory. I'm curious if anyone can tell me what makes this (or any given information) go into .Mathematica in my directory vs the "system" place. If it makes a difference, I'm using Mathematica 188.8.131.52 Home Edition on Fedora 14 (32 bit) -Mike
