MinGW shell cannot find gcc, g++ and others

Tired of fixing PATH every time you run the MinGW shell? Solution is easy. Navigate to %YOUR\_MINGW\_DIR%\msys\1.0\etc and rename fstab.sample to fstab. Restart your MinGW shell. Your /mingw/ path now will be bind to C:\MinGW.

In case you are wondering where is MinGW shell, it is %YOUR\_MINGW\_DIR%\msys\1.0\msys.bat

MinGW is usually installed on C:\MinGW.

You are welcome.
