Apparently the latest code has some problems. I just did a 'passwd' and got
'passwd: unrecoverable error 1722'
As reported, 'more' failed. I reinstalled a version of 'more' titled:
more --version => 'less 374'
from the March, 2002 release, and it worked.
Previously at shell start, I was reported as 'Administrator'. I am now
reported as 'unknown'.
My /etc/profile script has:
The script is unchanged (by me). 'id' can not be found. Since I haven't
ever changed this script then either profile was changed as part of the
initial distribution or 'id' was removed? Any idea what happened? ('id' is
described in 'Linux in a Nutshell', pub. O'Reilly.)
Hard-coded: USER="<my name>" removes the 'id' error
Hard-coded: HOME="<my home directory>" executes my ./bashrc (I am me)
So the removal of 'id' seems to be my problem.
Before I back up to the previous version, has anyone experienced problems
with the current software (circa cygwin 1.3.17-1)?
