basic response is :
you miss the DOS drive letter in your mount points
and the / moint point looks wrong (maybe d:\cygwin ?):
D: on / type system (binmode)
Excellent - that was the problem, although I really don't understand
why. Once d:/ is mounted on /, why do I need to qualify all the other
d:\cygwin\sbin on /sbin type system (binmode)
d:\cygwin\bin on /bin type system (binmode)
you seem to have too mount points.
typical mount points are :
C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts type
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type user (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type user (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type user (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type user (binmode,noumount)
As I mentioned, I don't want /cygwin mounted as /. This leads to the
additional mount points to get things like etc, usr, etc. mounted under /.
Thanks a ton.
Note that this would appear to be the same issue that has plagued people
regarding man not working with file not found errors.
