Cygwin 2.6.0 Fork issue
Fri Dec 30 19:25:00 GMT 2016
Looking at what you sent I see at least two suspicious
1) SEVERAL orphaned Cygwin installations. This indicates
you may have multiple installation of Cygwin in different
places, and this can certainly lead to trouble.
2) A number of files missing from certain packages, which
(at a glance) all seemed to be under /opt or /sbin. Did
you happen to delete those hierarchies? Or is there some
reason they could not be created?
I am not quite as expert at figuring out this sort of
problem as some others on the list, so I might be barking
up the wrong tree, but these seem worthy of investigation.
One way to fix things is to remove *all* Cygwin installations
(see the installation mentioned in the cygcheck output) and
reinstall Cygwin from scratch, paying attention if any files
could not be created (the /opt and /sbin concern). There
may be simpler fixes. And of course this does not rule out
BLODA (badly behaving other programs that interfere with
Cygwin's mechanisms - often anti-virus and similar tools).
