Question I seem to have broken something 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 31 Jul, 2009
From: Nick Laver <Nick Laver>

good morning all... Im a complete Newby to the running of simulations.... I installed Cygwin, Visual C++ and Geant4 toolkit as per the SLAC tutorial and all looked to be working (for about 10 minutes) I was throwing commands at it and trying to run the novice examples to get a feel for it and I think I may have broken it. When I open cygwin I am now presented with the message

"setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 x86 tools. Your group is currently "mkpasswd". This indicates that the /ect/passwd (and possibly /ect/group) files should be rebuilt. See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for example, run mkpasswd -l [-d] > //ect/passwd mkgroup -l [-d] > /ect/group Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users."

does anybody know what I have done and more importantly how I can fix it ?

much appreciated
