CYGWIN permissions

#1 Post by nganju » Thu Mar 08, 2007 7:49 pm

My windows/cygwin computer was recently replaced, and after reinstalling cygwin, I find that access and permissions to compiled files are modified. For example, when I execute "make clean", cygwin reports that some of the files are protected (mostly SWAN-related files like waves_coupler.o"). When I look at the file permissions, I find them changed to read/write only (which won't allow me to delete the file when i execute "make clean"). Even after changing the permissions to the entire directory, they revert right back. Is this my IT section's meddling or is it cygwin-related? any advice is appreciated...
