Re: Cygwin Setup 99% (fwd)


The Cygwin list does allow posts from non-subscribers, but puts them
through spam filter checks, and sometimes does not let messages through.
To find out how to be able to post without being flooded by e-mail, see
<>.  I'm directing the reply to
the list, though.

You can always do a "cd c:\cygwin\bin" and ".\bash.exe --login -i" from a
cmd.exe shell, which would be equivalent to the standard cygwin.bat.  The
above suggested commands can then be run from that shell.
