Re: Hosts file
I am doing a make of mysql and am getting the error:
libmysqld/sql_derived.cc: You are trying to create a symlink on a win32 file
This file type is not supported on this platform.
How do I correctly identify file types to cygwin and
correct this error situation?
Sorry for the bother!
