A new version of 'sysvinit' has been uploaded to a server near you.
o Removed csih_enable_color from init-config (as suggested by Charles)
o Fixed a bug in init-config
Init is the parent of all processes. Its primary role is
to create processes from a script stored in the file
/etc/inittab (see inittab(5)). This file usually has
entries which cause init to spawn gettys on each line that
users can log in. It also controls autonomous processes
required by any particular system.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'sysvinit' from
the 'System' category (it should already be selected).
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need to
find a mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
