Help!!! git on cygwin not working

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on June 24, 2008

Is there anyone out there that has instructions on how to get git working under cygwin?

I’ve downloaded cygwin and followed the instructions for installing git from the official page.

Everything looks great, but when I try to execute any git commands… nothing happens!?! Even a simple “git –version” returns nothing. I’m at a lost on what could possibly be wrong.

I’ve even tried uninstalling and reinstalling and even installed on a different machine and still the same thing. Is there something special I should be doing after the cygwin install?
