Re: <kein Betreff>

Hi Anjlica,

first - please don't send your mails to the list in both text and html
format. Just text would be sufficient!

There is no need to mount the root directory after having installed the
tools. It gets mounted during the setup.
Besides that it is hard to remount the root directory from inside bash.
You have to do it either by changing the registry directly or you can
do the following:

cd <your cygwin bin directory>
umount / && ./mount c:/ /
