Re: Snapshot 20061023, ghostscript and xdvi (new problems?)

Perhaps there are new problems. I send only for the sake of completeness.

Usually I update Cygwin dawnloading the packages with the scripts
'' and '' (both in the tar ball). Now with the
snapshot 20061023 14:06:13, Cygwin gives the following warning:

$ ./
Bunzipping2 setup.bz2 and adding .ini to it......done
cygwin warning:
  MS-DOS style path detected: C:/cygwin/home/Angelo/Downloads/cygwin
  Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /home/Angelo/Downloads/cygwin
  CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this
  Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:
Base Directory: /home/Angelo/Downloads/cygwin
Writing list of missing files to missing.lst


where does it take 'C:/cygwin/home/Angelo/Downloads/cygwin' from ?

I never use 'MS-DOS style path' ! and those scripts do not contain any
'MS-DOS style path' !
