I mean to create symbolic links in Msys2 (currently using the version from PortableApps). I only get files copied, no symlinks.
What I tried:
MSYS=winsymlinks:nativestrictin all three
msys2.inijust in case. Then I get
$ ln -s targetfile symlink ln: failed to create symbolic link 'symlink': Operation not permitted
I guess this is because I need to run msys2 as admin. I cannot do that.
In a command prompt
> mklink symlink targetfile Carece de privilegios suficientes para realizar esta operación.
(in Spanish, my locale, meaning
You do not have sufficient privileges to perform this operation). I guess it is the same need for running the command prompt as admin. I couldn't manage to run
mklinkfrom within msys2, but I guess I would have the same problem.
Is there any way of accomplishing what is asked in the title?
