Re: Delay during invocation of any CYGWIN command [SOLVED]
At 2011-04-09 18:02 -0400, I wrote:
I'm now running XP under VirtualBox and I'm pretty sure when I first
moved over I was running CYGWIN commands without delays. But I
don't always use CYGWIN, so I can't say for sure.
But I am sure I'm now getting a 5-second delay when invoking any
CYGWIN command. Once the command executes, I get a 10-second window
of no delays when invoking any CYGWIN command. After the 10 seconds
expires, the next CYGWIN command I try to execute delays for 5
seconds before it executes.
Program execution is always correct, the only problem is invocation.
I moved my CYGWIN installation, which was in a subdirectory on a
virtually-mapped drive pointing to a BSD subdirectory, to the logical
C: drive on VirtualBox and the invocation delay disappeared.
Note there were never any delays invoking DOS applications from the
virtually-mapped drive, only invoking CYGWIN applications. And there
are no delays running the CYGWIN applications or DOS applications on
files on the virtually-mapped drive. The problem was only with
invocation and only with CYGWIN.
Smooth operations have returned.
