On a Server I would like to run emacs.
If I save a file (buffer) emacs wants to create an directory called

The Problem is I have no right to write in "myhomedir". Iam just allowed to
write in subdirs like "myhomedir/something/".

What I tried so far to create a file "myhomedir/something/emacs" with the
following content:

(setq-default        auto-save-default        nil)
(setq-default        make-backup-files        nil)

and then run emacs with "emacs -l myhomedir/something/emacs".

The Problem is emacs still wants to craeate the ".emacs.d" directory.

My Question is: How to prevent emacs from creating this diretory or how to
tell emacs to create this directory somewhere else ?

greetings C.
