- Subject: Installation problems
I am running Windows XP with 512MB. I downloaded from the VA mirror and all
seemed to go well no problems. I downloaded setup.exe and it took over and
installed the rest from the internet. When completed I clicked on the
Desktop Icon and got the following:
/bin/find: /etc/profile.d: No such file or directory.
Futher checking showed that /etc/profile does exist and is readable at least
with cat.(/etc/profile.d does not exist). Other problems discovered ls only
works if you give it a directory ls (dosent) ls /etc (works). Passwd works
but it changes my login password to Windows. There is no root user and
mkuser doesnt work. Commands less, more, dir were not recognized. I dont
think I am in cygwin but I have no idea where I am.
