Does anyone know the cygwin start up process. I am trying to see if I
can somehow get it to work. I have a broken installation, and I don't
know what to do.
Windoze created accounts with a space in it (not really my choice), so I
wonder if this install is messed up due to the infamous space in my name
(http://cygwin.com/faq/faq_2.html#SEC17), and I am trying to fix the
situation under WinXP Pro.
Currently, when I run Cygwin, my default starting point is /bin
(D:\cygwin\bin), and the command cat does not seem to work. :'-(
I checked in my /etc, and I cannot seem to find any profile files, nor a
passwd file, nor many of the other files like bash.bashrc or
profile.default. I did seem to find a /etc/defaults/etc/profile in
How do I see where the setup failed? Is there a way I can fix this? :'\
