Re: Re: Strange errors with gcc and top, even after rebaseall


ok, then i need at work two 32bit versions, one for building software A and one for software B, and a 64bit version for working with Cygwin, e. g. locate, backups etc..
For switching between the versions i use moving (renaming) the directories of the other versions and replacing them with junction points to the active version.
Is there a better way for switching?

You can have the 32 bit version installed, but not all the packages.
Cygwin's approach to making fork work as closely as possible to the
way it works on Posix requires each Cygwin DLL to be put in its own
reserved place in the address space. The sum total of the DLLs
exceeds the available 32 bit address space.
