Perplexing message on bash shell start up
Wed Jul 11 20:24:00 GMT 2012
This is not a major problem, but I thought I’d report it for the curiosity value.
On starting a bash shell (in xterm which is probably not relevant) I got the following message:
MS-DOS style path detected: /cygdrive/c/Users/.../Repos/scripts/Home/.bashrc
Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/Users/.../Repos/scripts/Home/.bashrc
CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.
Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:
GNU bash, version 4.1.10(4)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)
The puzzling point being that the “Preferred POSIX equivalent” is identical to the remarkably Cygwin like “MS-DOS style path detected”.
I am pretty sure this happens because I use a MKLINK symbolic link in %HOME% to reference my .bashrc inside a repository.
I do not use a Cygwin symbolic link so that MINGW bash can find my .bashrc as well.
