I read: http://cygwin.com/faq/faq-nochunks.html#faq.using.chmod
and still do not understand...
I am unable to remove the read right for world (and group) from .netrc.
~> export CYGWIN=ntsec
~> chmod -c o-r .netrc
mode of `.netrc' changed to 0640 (rw-r-----)
~> ls -la .netrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 emagiro Domain Users 54 Feb 21 11:33 .netrc
~> getfacl .netrc
# file: .netrc
# owner: emagiro
# group: Domain Users
I installed cygwin 'for myself' as I did not have admin rights on this box
(which I got later).
I built the /etc/passwd and /etc/group with the utilities and the -l -d
options (takes hours on my network...)
mkpasswd is in fact still pending, so that I use a temp version of it,
in which I had a 'local' entry for myself:
etc> grep emagiro passwd*
uid=654351(emagiro) gid=10513(Domain Users)
I ran cygcheck -c and -s and could not see anything wrong.
What can I do to fix my environement, or even to diagnose what's wrong?
