I believe I've got msys set up properly on a
windows 2000 machine, in d:\Tools\msys, but I notice something really, really
1. If I create a /tmp directory
(d:/Tools/msys/tmp) and stick stuff in it, rather than see that stuff, I
see stuff in my c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp
2. If I attempt to create a /usr directory
from the rxvt console, it won't let me, and with no apparent /usr folder I can
cd into /usr and ls.exe lists the contents of my
root directory "/" (d:/Tools/msys/).
3. With no /usr directory present, I'm unable to cd
into /usr using cmd.exe, but after creating /usr with cmd.exe, when I cd into
/usr, I again see the contents of my root directory.
4. When I create a folder named usr on
c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ and stick stuff in it, then cd
into the folder, all works well and I see the stuff.
Does anyone have any ideas on the
cause if this behavior? I'm not a unix power user yet , but I
keep thinking "symlinks" , and I would appreciate the feedback from anyone
else who's experienced this near-paranormal
phenomenon and anyone with hints on how to fix it. Thank you.
