cygwin b20.1; winNT; ntea is not set
I am trying to run an app that is failing, I think, because /tmp does
not have the sticky bit set. I didn't find the word "sticky" anywhere
in the FAQ, manual, or mailing list archives.
Is setting the sticky bit something that you can do with cygwin? I
imagine that setting ntea will make it possible? Is that true?
I'm hesitant to try without asking first. I regularly access megabytes
of filespace that lives on unix AFS fileservers. Is there a way to set
ntea stuff only for my NTFS partitions? I don't want to grow a huge
attributes file for these AFS partitions.
What happens if I acces NFS partitions using an NT NFS client? does
ntea grow a large file in this scenerio?
