I've tried using mklink /d target source in cmd
I'm wondering if i'd have any better success with junctions or linkd
(2 pre-win7 ways of doing directory linking/mounting in Windows).
I have a dual install of cygwin-x86 & xygwin-x86-64 existing
mostly side by side in root -- but some programs don't play nice.
One appears to be setup -- or a script called by setup that
seems to change the link into a dir - which screws up all remaining
I also have a prob with the cygwin mount
c:/bin on /usr/bin -- anything in /usr/bin shows a path of:
Which is wrong on multiple levels.
oh..... it turns out /bin is being overwritten as well.
My links for bin & etc point to:
my cygwin dir in System32 points to C:\cygwin or C:\cygwin64
depending on if it is a 32-bit process accessing System32 or a 64-bit process
But this bit of setup deleting my directories is raising havok...
