user root does not exist (Cygwin)
I can't seem to find any cygwin forums anywhere and was hoping someone here could help me out since cygwin emulates linux. When I do 'su' in cygwin I get "user root does not exist." I was trying to switch to root because I was hoping it would fix another problem I've been having with cygwin. Everything that gets created from cygwin is read-only. Does anyone know how to fix either of these problems?
edit* Welll I found that su isn't ported, but still don't get why cygwin makes everything read only.
