I'm using the latest version of the win32-packager.pl script with win32-packager.24.patch applied.

After completing the MySQL install, win32.packager.pl<http://win32.packager.pl> chokes on relative paths inside BASH. I'm wondering if this is reproducible by anyone else or what did I do wrong?


win32-packager.pl output:

I believe I've had the same error when doing compile on my machine.
By default under /etc/fstab the mingw entry that I've had was:
c:Mingw /mingw

I had to change that to:
c:/Mingw /mingw for it to work.

I have not had a chance to see why it was defined like that in the first place.

Hope that helps,

Changing C:\msys\1.0\etc\fstab as described above fixed the error. Many thanks to Andrei.
