Hi - I've seen this twice now, and I can't find a hint in the FAQ, and searching the newsgroups available to me didn't turn up something that seemed related, so I hope this list is appropriate for asking such questions ... if not, I would appreciate a pointer to "the right thing to do".
On WinXP Pro, the installation leaves all file permissions to "---------+". Is that the way it should be - probably not ?? Anyway, nothing worked.
After I opened file permissions a little and re-ran the postinstall scripts, some things started working.
However, there are still many problems.
Like, the terminal type 'cygwin' is unknown.
Or, the 'man' command fails with:
groff: can't find `DESC' file
groff:fatal error: invalid device `ascii'
Is there some documentation that I've just not stumbled across that would tell me what I forgot, or did incorrectly ?
