FWD: PROBLEM WITH DU -Reply
Mon Sep 21 22:08:00 GMT 1998
I too am running on NT4/SP3. For me, du has no trouble with the
Winnt directories, which are installed on //c. However,
processes only the first folder correctly, and fails as you
describe. I am using B19.1/new-cygwinb19.dll, as I have not
been able to connect to the Okhapkin site from the office,
together with bash from cdk.exe. Perhaps we should try this
again with coolview.
I don't reproduce the problem you describe with du failing to read
the starting directory path.
"On NT Server 4SP3+some hotfixes, the following occurs when
Only the size of the first few directores are displayed. For the rest
them, du says "du: d:\/WINNT: No such file or directory" although
ones have been shown correctly. The command "du" has been
run from 4nt shell,
not bash. I have not tested under bash. Under NT's cmd.exe the
identical. If the first directories encountered contain
will be displayed correctly.
I have tried to give du parameters in DOS (\) and unix (/)
none works. Moreover, if I run "du ..", "du ../" or "du ..\" it will show
usage of the current (!!!) directory alone. "
