Dear Cygwin Team,
on my cygwin installation I have problems with case sensitivity although I
did everything described here:
I really need case sentitivity since I would like to use OpenFOAM (c++ cfd
library) inside cygwin and OpenFOAM has a bunch of files like scalar.H and
The minimal example for my problem is:
This gives me
This means touch is somehow case sensitive but
>cp -r test1 test2
fails with the message:
>cp: cannot create regular file /test2/file.txt: File exists
I also saw the latest thread on this topic:
My questions are:
1.a) Is the mentioned patch in the letest thread already contained in
cygwin 2.6.0 (this is the
cygwin.dll version according to cygcheck -s on my computer)?
1.b) If not, where do get this patch from?
2.) Are there any further tricks and tips concerning my problem?
