Unable to initialize cargo package

kriv02

I am unable to use cargo to create a new project. When I execute 'cargo new guessinggame', it fails, and returns 'Failed to create package "guessinggame" at "home/runner/guessinggame"

Caused by:
could not determine the current user, please set $USER'
This also happens when I run 'cargo init' on an already extant directory. Does anybody know how to fix this?

@kriv02
yeah it doesn’t say anything about r in the docs either.. hm. How about we take a stab at that “$USER” problem first. Might as well I guess. I can try and look a little closer later on if we are still not getting anything.
