Changing root path from /ecos-c/ to /
Tue Feb 8 22:43:00 GMT 2005
I'm using Cygwin. I wish to change the default path for C: from /ecos-c/ to /.
When I type "mount" in cygwin, I get the following:
C:\PFARM\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
c: on /ecos-c type user (textmode)
c: on / type user (textmode)
e: on /cygdrive/e type user (textmode,noumount)
f: on /cygdrive/f type user (textmode,noumount)
h: on /cygdrive/h type user (textmode,noumount)
i: on /cygdrive/i type user (textmode,noumount)
The utility I'm using fails unless C: on the Windows box is mounted as '/'.
"Whenever Cygwin generates a POSIX path from a Win32 one, it uses the longest
matching prefix in the mount table. Thus, if C: is mounted as /c and also
as /, then Cygwin would translate C:/foo/bar to /c/foo/bar."
