I finally got cygwin to install, after downloading lots and lots of
packages and with everyone's helpful hints on this mailing list. Thanks a
lot to all of you.
So, I started cygwin, and I get this message at the top of the screen
above the bash prompt:
Your username or group hasn't been setup correctly.
This typically happens if you are a domain user
(cygwin does not automatically create /etc/passwd or
/etc/group for domain users)
What should I do here? Is there such a thing as a 'root' account and user
Thanks in advance.
