b19.1: question about "wait for job"
Tue Sep 8 05:03:00 GMT 1998
Thank you for your assistance. Your replies pointed me at ash as
the culprit. [I wasnt sure how to submit this to the same
thread in the mailing list but here goes]
Although I used bash as d:/bin/sh.exe, I forgotten to change the main
definition in d:/usr/H-i386-cygwin32/bin/sh.exe, which was still
The setting in my mount path was
"d:\usr\H-i386-cygwin32\bin" -> "/bin"
which meant "#!/bin/sh" was really calling d:/usr/H-i386-cygwin32/bin/sh.exe,
instead of d:/bin/sh.exe as expected.
The problem was resolved by renaming bash.exe accordingly.
However, I have since found another oddity where the above fix, showed up
problems with bash instead and shows itself as a:
"Broken pipe" when carrying out decompression.
I'll submit it afresh with a relevent subject and example accordingly.
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"firstname.lastname@example.org" with one line of text: "help".
