An update, I removed cygwin. Deleted all files not removed. Rebooted.
Reinstalled from a different ftp location. Same problem. I am denied
permission for creating a new file or directory within cygwin on my
local drives. If I cd to a drive mapped on another computer I can add
files. As mentioned, the permissions both in Cygwin and in NT should be
allowing me to add files.
Another weird thing that may be a clue, after I installed cygwin many
files that were not touched were somehow changed to being owned by
5176.None Of course the first thing I did after having this problem
was try changing the owner to administrator.None, tournear.None
tournear.Administrators etc etc...
Any help? Thanks,
