I cannot install coreutils 8.15-1 because when running the postinstall
coreutils.sh it has an error.
Looking at the setup.log.full I see:
2012/02/20 10:22:15 running: C:\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile
/etc/postinstall/coreutils.sh: Using the default version of
2012/02/20 10:22:17 Changing gid to Administrators
2012/02/20 10:22:24 note: Installation Complete
2012/02/20 10:22:24 Ending cygwin install
I looked at the script and I see no reason for it to fail. However I
believe things are messed up before postinstall even runs this script.
If I do the following:
$ cp /etc/postinstall/coreutils.sh /tmp; echo $?
The bare cp(1) fails with 127. All kinds of commands fail with 127 like:
$ ls /bin/cygwin1.dll; echo $?
$ id; echo $?
My work around is to reinstall version 8.14-1 of coreutils. Does this
mean that coreutils 8.15-1 is horribly broken?
