Re: (everything!) command not found

All except gcc-mingw-core-3.4.4-20050522-1.tgz and gcc-mingw-g++-3.4.4-20050522-1.tgz
say done. I'm assuming they were unzipped and run, though, because I have
and a so I'm assuming that's the run,done version of the zipped files.
Besides, I can't do ANYTHING. Everything says "command not found".

I am unable to look at setup.log.full, and going to sends me here.
So I am completely, totally, stuck.

I suppose at this point the best idea is to uninstall and start over. Where is one supposed to run
umount -A from? And is it safe to, while in windows, just delete the cygwin folder and then say
"yes to all"?

Thanks for any help or advice!

Sounds like a problem running postinstall scripts. Check '/etc/postinstall'
for any scripts not suffixed by '.done'. If you find any, just rerun
'setup.exe' and "Next" through the pages. This should get 'setup.exe' to
rerun any postinstall scripts it has not already. If that doesn't solve
it, then look at 'setup.log.full' for hints. And if you need to follow-up,
send the log and the requested output described in the problem-reporting
link below:
