Hi, I tried to rebase the dll of cygwin. but I am getting some problem. Some dlls are not rebased

"XxX.dll skipped because not writable"

That's why I am not still getting "fatal error...couldn't allocate heap"

Please help to rebase dlls sucessfully.


first rule : NO top post here, please.

check XxX.dll permissions with

$ ls -l XxX.dll

results should looks like
-rwxr-xr-x+ 1 Marco Administrators   910336 Aug  3 20:32 tk84.dll

the W means writeable, to change it

$ chmod +w XxX.dll

Please help me to solve the problem.

This is typically the result of one of two things:


2. DLL collisions - Install the 'rebase' package, read its README in
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin, and follow the instructions there to run

and the second is clearly reported on at Windows point "3 Install Cygwin"
