AW: Cygwin on external drive?
Fri Sep 12 13:46:00 GMT 2003
bingo! Thanks to your hint my cygwin is working now perfectly on an external disk drive (Momobay CX-2 with a 40GB 2,5" disk, Firewire/USB2.0 :-)) The only thing still to improve is to mount a Firewire or USB 2.0 card in the PC to connect the drive (with USB 1.1 it is quite slow)
Thanks again - nice weekend from Munich :-)

I must say that I have expected problems. Should this be possible after a straight installation on an external drive from the beginning?
You must change your mount points to use the new Windows paths instead of
the old ones. Use mount and umount. Perhaps you have to cd into the
new bin directory first and call ./mount instead of just mount.
