I have a weird problem happening... so I have tried to update a 64-bit
Cygwin installation on Windows 10 Pro. I closed all Cygwin processes,
and a ps -ef is showing only the ps process itself.
In anycase, during the install I was prompted that the file
/usr/share/cygwin/cygwin.ldif was busy.
I ran Process Explorer and searched for what might have the file open.
I couldn't find anything. I clicked retry a number of times, but it
wouldn't yield. Finally, I clicked continue. And now I'm stuck in this
endless loop on the file:
It's a animated gif, so you may have to select play in your browser. Not
much to see, except the constant attempt to install the cygwin.ldif
Any ideas here? I guess I'll have to kill setup... but I fear that it
will play havoc with my install :-(
