Re: Question Error installing Geant4 9.0 (Shannon)

I figured out the problem. When I initially installed Cygwin I did so in order to use the program XFig. The directions for this installation (from http://www.cs.usask.ca/~wew036/latex/xfig.html) included mounting some directories "for convenience". Not knowing what I was doing, I mounted these directories like so: mount -s -f c: /c and as a result changed the home directory from /cygdrive/c/home to /c/home. I went back to the default mounts (I ended up removing all mounts and reinstalling the packages I needed from Cygwin) and tried the installation for Geant4 again. Everything seems to work...hooray! The default mounts for cygwin are: C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin; C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib; C:\cygwin on /; and

C: on /cygdrive /c
