I tried to install setup-1.7 on a system running a "normal" release
before. I've deleted the whole C:\cygwin dir from the disk and removed
all cygwin/cygnus related items from the registry.
But after running the new setup the mounts for /usr/bin and /usr/lib
where missing. Also there is no /etc/fstab file. What went wrong here?
There used to be a script, 000-cygwin-post-install.sh, bundled with the
cygwin package itself (well, 1.7 versions anyway), that did this. It
was recently moved to a package of its own, 'base-cygwin'.
However, that package does not seem to have been added to the 'Base'
category, or has not been uploaded to the release-2 area (I don't know
which). In any case, setup-1.7 didn't download it for me, either.
Here's the important part of the /etc/fstab file that it should have
C:/cygwin-1.7 / some_fs binary 0 0
C:/cygwin-1.7/bin /usr/bin some_fs binary 0 0
C:/cygwin-1.7/lib /usr/lib some_fs binary 0 0
...modify to suit your needs.
