Re: having problems with getting Up and Runnign

Thanks! i deleted all registry entrys and the cygwin dir. i suspect that
how cygwin handles all the locations of things (such as where the
binaries live) and how all that runs
i also found that bash and such have an issue with mulit-word usernames
windows allows these but Pine and Mutt fail because they are made for
/home/username/mail/ but i used /home/user name/mail (username was Sys
bash would show "[Sys Admin@the-ookbox]" but GNUStep would try to
write to /home/sys/GNUStep/ not /home/Sys Admin/GNUStep/
should we fix this in a future version? make the username all one word
(or use "_" in place - this makes it simpler)?

You're best bet? <>

A WAG is that you should re-run "setup.exe" and choose "Reinstall" for all.
If you choose to try my WAG before consulting
<>, please consult it if my WAG doesn't work
out for you.
