- Subject: mkpasswd group
When I open my cygwin console window I get the
following message displayed each time:
Your group is currently "mkpasswd". This indicates
the /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) files should
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd
mkgroup -l [-d] > /etc/group
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users.
I have run the commands as specified but each time I
open the console window again I get the same message.
I have researched this mailing list as well as google
and found similiar listings but was unable to find
resolutions to this issue.
