Is this the only postinstall script that gives you problems? What happens if you rename it to so that setup won't keep trying to run it. Do the remaining scripts run OK? If not, please take a look at /var/log/setup.log.full to see if you can tell why they're failing.

Tried running  manually, and the script just hangs.

If I run individual commands, they complete normally whereas in the
script they hang (donât return control to the calling script).

Very strange.

Please follow the problem-reporting guidelines at, including the part about attaching cygcheck output:

"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file *as an attachment* in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be easily viewed."
