We are experiencing an strange problem using cygwin in Windows 2008R2. =
We are unable to open more than 32 bash windows.
When we try, we receive the following message
0 [main] bash 8968 C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe: *** fatal error - = console
device allocation failure - too many consoles in use, max = consoles is
This doesn't happen to other systems also using W2008R2, which are using
= older versions of cygwin (1.7.15) but I cannot find the difference.
The = troubling ones are using
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 SYSTEM_NAME 1.7.17(0.262/5/3) 2012-10-19 14:39 i686
= Cygwin=20 =20 I've looked around using google, but the only reference
to this message = appears in the cygwin source code.
Can someone give me clue?
