I think the problem is that virtual /dev is a read-only filesystem,
but if you make a real /dev directory; then you can write to it.
Could you run 'mkdir -p /dev' (without the quotes) and then try
rerunning setup-x86_64.exe? I suspect this will work then.
The base-cygwin script usually creates the /dev dir. Do we have
a dependency loop which let bash.sh run before base-cygwin?
The only package that depends on base-cygwin is cygwin itself, and
neither depend on bash.
a2ps.sh exit code 2
This is due to a missing papersize(5) file. I'm working on a fix,
but a workaround is to run the following command, then rerun
echo letter > /etc/papersize
I'd prefer `echo a4 > /etc/papersize' ;)
I suppose you would. :-) Any idea how to provide a sane default that
most people on both sides of the pond would be happy with?
