I'm trying to do a fresh installation of Cygwin 1.7.12-1 on a new
Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. At the end of the installation I get a
warning that bash.sh returned exit code 1.
The related parts of the log:
2012/04/04 11:53:05 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile
ln: cannot remove `/dev/stdin': No such file or directory
ln: cannot remove `/dev/stdout': No such file or directory
ln: cannot remove `/dev/stderr': No such file or directory
ln: cannot remove `/dev/fd': No such file or directory
2012/04/04 11:53:05 abnormal exit: exit code=1
Possibly related: I get errors a bit earlier in the log files:
2012/04/04 11:53:01 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile
mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/shm': No such file or directory
Creating /dev/shm directory failed.
POSIX semaphores and POSIX shared memory will not work
mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/mqueue': No such file or directory
Creating /dev/mqueue directory failed.
POSIX message queues will not work
I *suppose* the issue is related to this change in 1.7.12:
"- Cygwin now automatically populates the /dev directory with all
existing POSIX devices."
Do I have to take any actions regarding those issues? If so, which?
Thanks in advance,
