Known problem and easy to fix.
Download the rebase package, read the readme, stop all cygwin services
run rebaseall in ash.
Thank you for the timely reply! However I am stuck on what should be a
simple step: rebaseall tells me /tmp is not writable. I have tried a
variety of directories (all of which are actually writable of course)
and a variety of ways of geting there, including mount point, env. var,
Further experimentation leads me to believe the shell will return false
for -w of any directory. This is consistent with the apparent mode of
555 I see on all of them. And of course they don't respond to chmod. (I
believe this is a windows thing that I have even read about somewhere in
the cygwin docs...)
So I am left with the question: how would this ever work?
