I am not certain that it is the root cause of the problme.. but
certainly that is
likely to cause trouble.

if you follow lode install then cygwin was installed with your user..
so you _can_ create a new home directory

assuming you are in cygwin in your current home directory 'Jason and Emma'

mv lode /. # copy the existing lode stuff.. to the root (you can do
that in this case because your user own the root filesystem

make sure to edit your .bashrc so that LODE_HOME point now to /lode
and PATH contain /lode/opt/bin at the front (so that 'make' resolve to
the right one by default when you use it fromt he command line)

terminate you cygwin session and start it again.


cd /lode

remove /lode/dev/core ust in case it was in bad state.

rm -fr /lode/dev/core

and run ./setup --dev again
