Re: [Mingw-msys] Strange path transformation with Emacs





You are right. There is a problem after the upgrade.
I did not get the same error message. info was not able to find the gcc.info
file.

How to confirm this:

First, to be sure that i have a clean and clear  situation, i completely
uninstalled MSYS.
I first used the uninstall procedure, which did not completely removed MSys.
So, i delete the MSys directory and all of its subdirectory.

I then, installed MSys 1.0.10.
info is working fine. do find *.info files in MingW and also do find *.info
files
pointed to by the INFOPATH env var.

ie: INFOPATH=E:\MingW\info;E:\cygwin\usr\share\info

Then i tried to untar the MSYS-1.0.11-20080821-dll.tar file.
Did not worked, because MSys tar do used (and lock) the MSys dll. On
Windows platform, a locked file cannot be replaced like this.

So i used Winzip to install the new dll, (TAR file smart CR/LF conversion
OFF)
and tried info again. Every thing is still ok.

You should know, that msysCore contains a newer msys dll.
After installing msysCORE-1.0.11-20080826.tar with Winzip, because tar
cannot replace the
locked MSys dll, info was not completely working.

The info files in MingW\info, (gcc.info for example), were not accessible
anymore.
info give error: Unable to find node referenced by `gcc' in `(dir)Top'

The other info files, those  in E:\cygwin\usr\share\info, were still
available to info.

So, there is a problem with the upgrade.

fstab contains only: E:/MingW /mingw
Path=E:\MSys\bin;E:\Msys\local\bin;E:\MingW\bin

Hope that helps to fix the problem.

Regards.
