The first thing to do is give us the normal info,
./cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out
if you get something like "bash: cygcheck not found, then try manualy
navigating to the bin subdirectory where you installed cygwin from a
windows command prompt and re-running the cygcheck command.
(to open explorer in the current directory so you can
get at cygcheck.out)
then mail it to the list.
