I downloaded snapshot 6 for setup (setup-2001-11-02-6.exe) from cygwin.com and
like what I see - great job Robert and Chris. Now my problem - I actually
tried first to build the HEAD from cvs as well as the -rcategories and was
getting an error in both cases. I downloaded the snapshot and it works like a
champ. I then made sure I had all the current package updates and reconfigured
and rebuilt my cvs version and I still get the error.
Now for the details. When I try to run my built version (current cvs) it works
fine when I select install from internet or install from local directory but
when I select download from internet - setup crashes as soon as I select the
next button and I get the following error:
setupcurr.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x0040f7cd" referenced memory at "0x00000001". The memory
could not be "read".
Click OK to terminate the program
Click CANCEL to debug the program
I also tried this with the version from -rcategories and get the same results
but the snapshot works as it should. I ran the program through gdb and traced
the error to mount.cc - max_len seems to end up as a -1 in the following lines:
if (max_len == strlen (path))
native = strdup (match->native);
native = concat (match->native, "/", path + max_len, NULL);
it fails on the else portion of this routine.
Anyone got any suggestions how I can get my version compiling again - I know
I'm a pain. This is on a Win2000 laptop.
