- Subject: Wrong links in /etc
Following the discussion "Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: vim-7.0.122-1"
I have discovered that in /etc there are 4 wrong links (I say that them
are 'wrong' because 'ls' shows them in RED instead of CYAN):
hosts -> C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
protocols -> C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\protocol
services -> C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\services
networks -> C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\networks
Now, I have the cygdrive prefix mounted to '/', i.e. when I installed
Cygwin, I have run
mount --change-cygdrive-prefix /
so that I can access drives as /c (C:), /a (A:), /d (D:, DVD burner) and
/e (E: CD burner).
I would ask if it is the case, as workaround, to recreate, manually, those
links in the correct way, for example:
ln -sf /c/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts hosts
