I've used cygwin for lots of years, and this is kind of weird to me.
My operations guys set up some Windows Server 2012 R2 servers with
Cygwin x86-64 2.2.1.
There's a CIFS mount (from an HNAS) that I use a lot that is giving me
problems. For example:
$ ls /cygdrive/m/install
ls: cannot access /cygdrive/m/install: Bad address
$ ls m:/install
Works just great.
Using /cygdrive/m I can list the contents of the root of the drive,
but I can't read any files. And any subdirectory just gives me the
"Bad address" error. Everything (except completion) works just fine
with m:/ paths.
This isn't a huge deal. I mostly use cygwin on these servers to
manage them with scripts, so I've changed my configuration variables
to <drive letter>: paths and everything seems to work. But I did
spend nearly half a day figuring this out, so I'm curious if there's a
configuration problem or a known issue that my searches haven't
