Re: Installer of Cygwin 64 seems to freeze when executing /etc/postinstall/ - version 2.874

May be is the value of PATH the problem?
When I launch, by a double click on the bash.exe file, a cygwin bash shell (C:\cygwin64\bin\bash.exe) and I display $PATH, I don't find any cygwin directory in the list, but a list of windows directories: /cygdrive/c/Windows/system32:/cygdrive/c/Windows:/cygdrive/c/Windows/System32/Wbem: ...

So, when I execute in the cygwin bash shell the command '/bin/sh -x /etc/postinstall/', I get the same errors than those I get when I execute 'C:\cygwin64\bin\sh -x /etc/postinstall/' in the windows command interpreter:
the command 'uname' is unknown.

If I change the value of PATH with PATH=/cygdrive/c/cygwin64/bin:$PATH and export PATH, the execution of 'sh -x /etc/postinstall/' don't give any errors.

What is the value of PATH when the installation executes the set of postinstall scripts ?

I guess this doesn't reproduce the problem (freezing), as this is just what I would expect to see when running the script without the PATH set?

Perhaps you could try again from a cygwin bash shell?
