Broken Update?


after doing an update a few minutes ago, some files in /etc are gone.
When I start the cygwin shell, I see this:

Huh?  No /etc/fstab file?  Using default root and cygdrive prefix...
bash: /usr/bin/tr: No such file or directory
bash: /usr/bin/sed: No such file or directory
Your group is currently "mkpasswd".  This indicates that
the /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) files should be rebuilt.
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for example, run
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd
mkgroup  -l [-d] > /etc/group
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users.
bash login...

I was able to fix it with this /etc/fstab

c:/cygwin	/		system	binary	0	0
c:/cygwin/bin	/usr/bin	system	binary	0	0
c:/cygwin/lib	/usr/lib	system	binary	0	0

But I am not sure whether this is the proper solution.  Any hints?

Kind regards
