Hi, I just installed cygwin 2.573.2.2 directly from internet. Trying to get my linux-scripts working I repeated the installation a few times (only changing text-mode to binary-mode and back). Now I'm using test-mode.

2.573.2.2 is the version of 'setup.exe', not any of Cygwin's packages. Each package has their own version. This is why we recommend *attaching* the output of 'cygcehck -s -r -v' to problem reports, so we know what versions of which packages you have installed. See:


We highly recommend working with binary mounts as well.
