- Subject: cygwin login and passwords
Is changing uid's and gid's in /etc/passwd something
to be avoided, since I assume these are windows assigned?
Need su and login to work seemlessly with windows'
passwords in order to allow remote logins and ssh
clients. Currently, login does not recognize valid
Also, If I create a windows user called
root, is there a way to make windows give it uid 0
or even change windows' password file (whereever that is)
to assign root uid 0?
