A new release of findutils, 4.4.0-3, is available for use with cygwin
1.5.x, replacing 4.4.0-1, and leaving 4.3.13-1 as the previous version.
(4.4.0-2 remains the only version usable with cygwin 1.7.0.)
This is a minor patch release. It applies the same cygwin-specific patch
as is used in 'df -T' to work around the poor output from getmntent in
cygwin 1.5.x (cygwin 1.7.0 does not have the problem). This in turn makes
'find -fstype' and 'find -printf "%F"' able to distinguish remote drives,
so that updatedb can avoid remote file systems.
See also /usr/share/doc/findutils-4.4.0/.
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system. The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria (such
as a filename pattern). The xargs utility builds and executes command
lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names generated
by the find command). The locate utility scans a database of filenames
and displays matches. The updatedb utility builds the database for locate.
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 'findutils' from
the 'Base' 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.
