I can think of a couple of instances when I have seen this message.
Pavel is correct services for Unix make use of the Posix subsystem in
this can be disabled in the registry.
I think this is in the localmachine->system->currentcontrolset->control
search for posix.
The optional key should be 4f 73 32 00 50 6f 73 69 78 00 00 on NT 4.
this should be operational by default. As always usual caveats about
My recollection is that cygwin does not rely on this subsystem however,
the other time I have seen this message is when the command for instance
is not in the path. For instance opening a command prompt and typing ls
give this result.
Are you sure you are opening cygwin with the cygwin.bat file, and that
mounts and other wise are correct. From what you say it appears that it
fine on subsequent invocations.
There is no network dependency here, that is being "woken up" by the
call is there? Additionally have you got some profile commands that set
path and mounts on first invocation?
Sorry I can't be more precise.
