Re: cron in cygwin


What problem are you referring to?  The question of
what difference it makes if you install Cygwin as
"Just Me" vs "All Users"?  That's just where the mount
goes in the registry as Igor mentioned.  If you're
questioning why Sanjay is having problems with his
cron installation, that is not clear and I can't help
here beyond what has already been offered.  BTW, there
is no magic to the drive that Cygwin is installed on.

reinstalling the software.

Thanks for your "system mount" reset command.

The solution you propose is quite drastic and unnecessary.

The problem

you mention has to do with the Cygwin mounts being user, rather than
system, mounts.  First of all, there is a simple way to reset those
without re-running setup.exe and/or reinstalling Cygwin, by using
something like

eval "`mount -m | sed -e 's/ -u / -s /g' -e 's/$/;'`"

(the above is for the archives).

Oops, that's not much good for the archives, is it? *blush* Here's the correct one:

eval "`mount -m | sed -e 's/ -u / -s /g' -e 's/$/;/'`"

Sorry about that.
