Re: Permission problem installing to Mapped Network Drive

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

Package: fontconfig exit code 13
Package: texlive-collection-basic 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.
