- Subject: Problems after upgrading to 1.5.19-4
Last night, I grabbed an additional package using setup.exe. It also downloaded and installed the latest cygwin1.dll (1.5.19-4) and core utilities. I had not updated since early January. While it was running the post-install script, I received serveral errors along the lines of "... could not be found in cygwin1.dll". I rebooted, and now when I run the bash shell, it drops me in /usr/bin and I have no Cygwin directories in my path (/bin, /usr/bin). Also, my term colors are now messed up.
I did a diff on the /etc and /home directories which I had backed up, but there were no differences in the config files. I also did not find any other cygwin1.dll's on my system. It is interesting to note I have the cygwin sshd running on that machine, and when I ssh into it I have no problems with paths or term colors.
This is running on Windows XP Pro. I know my way around Unix but I know little about how the Cygwin shell runs on windows. I tried adding the Cygwin paths in my .bashrc, but now it barfs on the spaces in the Windows directory names.
Any help would be appreciated.
