Can't CD to a directory?

Redding, Matthew
Can't CD to a directory?

Hi MinGW gurus,

Thanks for your help on this one.

I've installed MSYS on my system and am working through the wiki's recommendations.

I've had a little trouble with downloads from source forge and Windows insisting on renaming them without bz2 or gz extensions but

I found I could name them back to what I wanted then use tar from within the msys bash shell.

SO far so good….

However, now I cannot cd to the directories where I want to install the latest versions of autoconf, automake, and libtool.

I can have a look at them from within file explorer, but not from within the msys shell.

Hmmm.


Any ideas:

$ls
autoconf-2.63               coreutils-5.97-MSYS-1.0.11-snapshot.tar
autoconf-2.63.tar.gz        info
automake-1.0                libtool-2.2.tar.gz
automake-1.0.tar.gz         m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar
bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar  man
bin                         reddinm
coreutils-5.97              usr

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd autoconf-2.63
sh: cd: autoconf-2.63: No such file or directory


Hopefully this is a simple oversight on my part. I can't find anything in the archive for the group however.

Kind regards,


Matt Redding

On the SF project FRS page

find it named "MSYS Supplementary Tools".  In it you'll find a

On the SF project FRS page as above you will find "MSYS Base System"
with a release of "Technology Preview: MSYS-1.0.11".  In it are more
recent versions of the individual packages used to create MSYS.  The
CORE MSYS package is delivered as msysCORE and contains the Minimal
SYStem.  The next version is 1.0.11 and the most current released date
of the preview is 20080826.  The bad thing about giving a specific file
in the WIKI is that the WIKI data becomes outdated.

Strange.  What does ``ls -la'' show?

Does ``cd /autoconf-2.63'' behave better?

What is the output of ``set''?

Not really that confidential is it?  Please try to refrain from sending

Re: Can't CD to a directory?

Redding, Matthew
Hi Earnie,
I have trawled through the updates. I have installed the 20080826
version, which leaves me with the  cd problem.

Extra info as requested.

It did not work as described above.
Now more wierdness - when I use:

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd /autoconf-2.63

it works

reddinm@TBADKI184 /autoconf-2.63

Not only that, it appears to keep working, and there is now no sign of
the problem.

Re: Can't CD to a directory?

Redding, Matthew
In reply to this post by Earnie Boyd
Hi Earnie and All,

Sorry, there was a mistake in my previou reply. Last night I must have
gone back to the earlier MSYS release before giving up on it for the
night.

I have just installed msysCORE-1.0.11-20080826.tar.gz
and the problem still stands:

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd reddinm
sh: cd: reddinm: No such file or directory

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ ls
autoconf-2.63                            info
autoconf-2.63.tar.gz                     libtool-2.2
automake-1.0                             libtool-2.2.tar.gz
automake-1.0.tar.gz                      m4-1.4.7-MSYS.tar
bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1.tar               man
bin                                      reddinm
coreutils-5.97                           usr
coreutils-5.97-MSYS-1.0.11-snapshot.tar

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd \reddinm
sh: cd: reddinm: No such file or directory

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd /reddinm
sh: cd: /reddinm: No such file or directory

reddinm@TBADKI184 ~
$ cd autoconf-2.63


Any ideas?

Hope I am not breaking any ettiquet rules asking this question here.
The link
to the mailing list is not working.

Kind regards,

Matt Redding

Strange.  What does ``ls -la'' show?

Does ``cd /autoconf-2.63'' behave better?

What is the output of ``set''?

Not really that confidential is it?  Please try to refrain from sending

What is the command you're giving in MSYS?  Be sure to use / and not \
for the directory separator.

DTK == Developer Tool Kit.

On the SF project FRS page
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435 you will
find it named "MSYS Supplementary Tools".  In it you'll find a
"Technology Preview: Tools for MSYS-1.0.11" release with more current
versions of the tools contained within it.

> * Install MSYS Core 1.0.11
>
<http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/msysCORE-1.0.11-2007.01.19-1.tar

>

On the SF project FRS page as above you will find "MSYS Base System"
with a release of "Technology Preview: MSYS-1.0.11".  In it are more
recent versions of the individual packages used to create MSYS.  The
CORE MSYS package is delivered as msysCORE and contains the Minimal
SYStem.  The next version is 1.0.11 and the most current released date
of the preview is 20080826.  The bad thing about giving a specific file
in the WIKI is that the WIKI data becomes outdated.

Good, I'm glad to hear it.  If you have more issues about this then I
want to see the contents of /etc/fstab.

I noticed that this morning.  Probably the upgrade to new servers is
taking affect.  I'll let everyone know when it is operational again.
