- Subject: After installing 1.7.7 command ls is null
I have just installed 1.7.7 after several unsuccessful attempts.
Several auxiliary libraries were not included in the installation after
setup finished. OK -- so I had to locate and rerun setup repeatedly.
At some point I succeeded in having a terminal running with a
bash-shell. It was probably my own fault not to have 'find' and 'sed'
included, since that obviously is supposed to be common knowledge.
Finally with the terminal running the shell -- including, finally, usual
command editing facilities -- one problem remains
ls gives me no reaction at all :-(
I can type other commands and get the expected behaviour, but not ls --
and who knows what others.
Quite an experience! With patience I might become as pleased with 1.7
as with a 1.5 on another machine.
Any suggestions? I include a cygcheck.out, the generation of which
followed the message:
garbled output from 'id' command - no uid= found
