- Subject: ls / does not show /c with cygdrive prefix=/
If I use a standard install with the cygdrive prefix as /cygdrive, the
drive letters appear in a directory listing:
$ ls /cygdrive
c d w
But if I change cygdrive to /, they don't:
$ mount -c /
$ ls /
Cygwin.bat bin dev home opt sbin usr
Cygwin.ico cygdrive etc lib proc tmp var
But of course, they are there:
$ ls /c
That's as Administrator. Adding the -s flag to mount doesn't help,
neither does a reboot.
Is there any way to make /c, etc. appear in the listing?
I'm running on Windows Server 2008 64-bit with Cygwin DLL 1.5.25-19.
cygcheck on request.
