I originally thought this problem was due to installing as non-admin, but
further investigation has led me to conclude the problem is due to
installing to a Mapped Network Drive (or even a drive other than C:).
I am trying to install cygwin on a non-networked computer as a non-admin
user. But for now I am installing it on a computer running XP, with a
network connection and as an admin user. To mimic the remote case, I set
up a Mapped Network Drive, for which I have full access privileges. I need
the texlive-collection-latex package, so have installed that.
The installation fails with
fontconfig.sh exit code 13
texlive-collection-basic.sh exit code 11
and running latex at a terminal window gives
-bash: /usr/bin/latex: cannot execute binary file
$ chmod +x /usr/bin/latex
$ ls -l /usr/bin/latex
-rw-r--r-- 1 curtis None 21 Jan 25 20:04 /usr/bin/latex
I can't change the permissions. How do I fix this?
/usr/bin/latex is actually a symlink to /usr/bin/pdftex.exe, but for
some reason Cygwin isn't recognizing this. You're probably going to
have to send more information about your network drive in order for
someone (not me) to help you figure out what the problem is.
