I have no idea where that came from. All files in the Cygwin
(/bin, /usr/bin, /lib, ...) are owned by kaz:kaz. Numerically,
197613:197613. The UID and GID are the same number.
I don't see a passwd file any more in current Cygwin, but getpwent
This is the TXR Lisp interactive listener of TXR 243.
Quit with :quit or Ctrl-D on an empty line. Ctrl-X ? for cheatsheet.
#S(passwd name "kaz" passwd "*" uid 197613 gid 197613 gecos
dir "/home/kaz" shell "/bin/bash")
#S(passwd name "SYSTEM" passwd "*" uid 18 gid 18 gecos "U-NT
dir "/home/SYSTEM" shell "/bin/bash")
I have no clue where this configuration came from. Is there some
for these names when a new installation is made?
If nobody else has this problem, I must have done something wrong.
