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 for the report. That's a blatant bug in the /dev handling.
I hope I fixed it sufficiently in CVS. I'm just generating a new
snapshot which should be available in about half an hour on
Please give it a try. For instance, call the /etc/postinstall/bash.sh
and /etc/postinstall/000-cygwin-post-install.sh files manually ands
report back if they do what they should in terms of /dev. Maybe the
scripts now have a .done suffix, but you should still be able to run
mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/shm': Read-only file system
Creating /dev/shm directory failed.
POSIX semaphores and POSIX shared memory will not work
mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/mqueue': Read-only file system
Creating /dev/mqueue directory failed.
POSIX message queues will not work
