Hi,



Error:

df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: Invalid argument.



Can someone compile a new version of df.exe for windows 7/2008 32bit.



I don't know how to do this or I would try myself.

Or is there a workaround for this?



C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin>df -i

df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: Invalid argument



C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin>df

df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: Invalid argument



C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin>df -h

df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: Invalid argument



C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin>df -lh

df: cannot read table of mounted file systems: Invalid argument



C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin>

Thanks for the report. However, you should raise this as a bug with the
GnuWin32 folks, as there is nothing we can do about it here upstream.

Coreutils 5.3.0 is extremely old (the current release is 8.9, with 8.10
due later this month). The cygwin port of df is much more up-to-date,
and has no problems with df. Maybe you should consider switching to cygwin.

With no further comments in 7 years, I'm closing this bug.
