Gulp! In this context, the translation of 'Nessuno' should be 'None' and
NOT 'Nobody' :-(
I resend correcting, for the sake of completeness... :-)
-------- Messaggio Originale --------
Oggetto: Cygwin-1.7 and 'Nobody' group
Usually, installing Cygwin, the file /etc/passwd contains things like:
so that 'ls -lrt' shows many files like this:
-rw-r--r-- 1 pippo None 5858 Jul 28 17:04 emoticon.txt
To 'avoid' seeing 'None', the strategy I have applied has been to change
513 --> 544 for Administrator
513 --> 545 for pippo
513 --> 546 for Guest
(using the informations from /etc/group...)
Now, on Cygwin-1.7, with the default /etc/passwd and /etc/group, I see,
as administrator, many files like
-rw-r--r-- 1 Administrator root 5858 Jul 28 17:04 foo.txt
which looks right, and many files like
-rw-r--r-- 1 Administrator None 5858 Jul 28 17:04 foo.txt
If, now, I adopt the above strategy (513 --> ...), the files with
'Administrator root' change to 'Administrator Administrators'
and other remain with 'Administrator None'
Seeing the Properties with Explorer, these files have, in User and
Group, besides Administrators and Everybody, also
which does not happen with the same files in Cygwin-1.5.
So, should one lives with these 'None' in Cygwin-1.7?
