I've just tested it and it still works for me. Could you check the
permissions on cygwin1.dll? Is system not permitted to read/executethe
$ ll /bin/cygwin1.dll
-rwxr-x---+ 1 Andrew Users 967522 Sep 1 10:16 /bin/cygwin1.dll*
$ chmod +x /bin/cygwin1.dll
$ ll /bin/cygwin1.dll
-rwxr-x--x+ 1 Andrew Users 967522 Sep 1 10:16 /bin/cygwin1.dll*
$ net start cron
The Cygwin cron service is starting.
The Cygwin cron service could not be started.
The service did not report an error.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.
Didn't help. Wonder why many of the files under /bin were owned by the
group Users and others set to the group DeFaria? And what does that "+"
at the end of the permmissions string mean?
Anyways I did a:
$ chmod 755 /bin/*
$ chgrp DeFaria /bin/*
I did get the following one time:
Event Type: Information
Event Source: /usr/sbin/cron
Event Category: None
Event ID: 0
Time: 7:52:46 AM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( /usr/sbin/cron ) cannot
be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry
information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote
computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this
description; see Help and Support for details. The following information
is part of the event: /usr/sbin/cron : PID 4036 : (CRON) STAT FAILED
Interesting because I don't have an /etc/cron.d. Creating it fixed my
problem! Hmmm... Why didn't the post install create this? I have no
idea. But I'm glad it's now working.
(BTW: Interestingly enough, I no longer have a
Quote from the announcement:
"The package now adheres to the filesystem hirarchy standard (FHS)."
That means, documentation, man pages and info pages are now under
/usr/share instead of /usr.
Obligatory witty line: Help! I'm modeming... and I can't hang up!!!
