Re: /dev/console : permission denied

Thanks for your prompt response! Sorry for the lack of details... I've been running cygwin for about 5 years now and love it! However, I only recently began using syslogd (and therefore had not noticed the issue before).

Running on WinXP Pro/SP2.

'cygcheck -c cygwin' reports 1.5.18-1 (STATUS OK)

Specifically, 'cygcheck -c' reports OK for all 212 packages(?) which I have installed.

Performing 'ls -l /dev/console' reports:

So this seems good. This is a stand-alone laptop (not a domain client).

I also attached my messages file, in case there is something useful there that hasn't caught my attention.

Thanks, again!

Yeah, that looks fine.. Standard procedure is to attach the output of cygcheck -s -v -r though.. That said, I've just checked mine and I'm still getting this message.. As well as all messages being duplicated now.. Joy.. No idea why offhand.

Will investigate more later, but hopefully someone will come up with
It doesn't seem to be anything to worry about though.


Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
