- Subject: "cannot find username for UID XXX"
Just installed Cygwin on Win2K. It's working fine except that I don't
have a username ;( . This has some bad consequences like not being
able to use ssh. id returns the following:
uid 479 is not in passwd, as can be seen in attachment.
My username should be erajpaa. I have no idea where Cygwin picks up
uid 479 from. If I start up cmd.exe, I can see the following USER
ALLUSERSPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users
USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\erajpaa
These are inherited by the Cygwin shell, which however also creates
Could I have done something wrong during installation, or can I do
something to fix this now?
Should I change the uid for erajpaa in passwd, or can I do something
to convince Cygwin I'm uid 66015 instead?
Any help is appreciated.
