1.5.18: Re: .bash_profile not being invoked


Many thanks for your time. When I tried cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out, I got the following error message:
cygcheck: dump_sysinfo: GetVolumeInformation() failed: 53

I am running cygwin 1.5.18-1 under Windows XP Professional (Intel Pentium M).
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 msc3069779w 1.5.18(0.132/4/2) 2005-07-02 20:30 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin

My HOME is set up correctly:
farhad@msc3069779w ~
$ echo $HOME

My mount info is also correct:
farhad@msc3069779w ~
$ mount
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
C:\farhad on /farhad type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode,noumount)

I am running cygwin 1.5.17 under Windows XP Professional (Intel Pentium M) on a very similar machine without any problems.

Best regards,

I have installed cygwin previously without any problems. After my installation yesterday, .bsh_profile does not get invoked when I run cygwin.bat . My mount and HOME are OK because cygwin.bat takes me to my home directory, but it does not go through .bash_profile in my home directory. I also copied .bash_profile to .profile and .bash_login (its synonyms) in my home directory without any success.

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
