I removed cygwin1.5 on both of my two computers, one is a laptop and
another is a desktop, they are all Windows XP. I then installed
cygwin 1.7 for them, the result is strange. The laptop seems okay,
but the desktop, I tried re-install many times, always fail when I
execute fa-cache on it, the error messages are:
/cygdrive/c/Windows/Fonts: caching, new cache contents: 598 fonts, 0 dirs
/cygdrive/c/Windows/Fonts: caching: failed to write cache
... (repeat for other font directories)
But If I install cygwin1.5 on the desktop, it is always okay with fc-cache.
What's wrong with it?
