Yes, I am in a windows domain. (But my UID is correctly recognised :
the id command returns uid=11135(stein) gid=10545(mkgroup_l_d);
the group seems wrong thou)

You missed my "I have years of unix experience" line ? ;-)
The only files in /etc/skel are "." and ".." .
You also said in another mail :

Should I still do that ?
Or "Reinstall" "all" first ?
Also nothe the weird things reported by cygcheck. Here is an brief excerpt :
C:\Program Files\NX Client for Windows\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /mnt/NX/fonts
type user (textmode)
C:\Documents and Settings\stein\.nx\tmp on /tmp type user (textmode)
C:\Program Files\NX Client for Windows on /usr/NX type user (textmode)
...rest is normal...
I have the NX client for windows installed (before I installed cygwin).
It seems there is some interference ?
About the full cygcheck output :
I am posting at gmane.org and it does not seem to support attachments.
Subsribing would be also pointless, since every mail I send is refused due
to the "MS OutLook is too stupid to send plain text" problem.
