cygwin crashes after every ~ 10th command and starts up only every ~ 4th try...
Wed Jun 22 12:48:00 GMT 2005
Since a couple of hours cygwin crashes all the time on my windows nt
computer. In order to restart cygwin I have to execute the xserver batch
file several times until finally an xterm shows up. The same xterm than
crashes after only a couple of commands - for example 10 executions of
'ls'. I updated cygwin and also tried to reboot my computer, but the
I had a somehow similar problem a couple of months ago when I tried to
copy files recursively or used the find command. Also since a couple of
months emacs crashes on a regular basis complaining not to be able to
connect to the xserver.
But never the problem has been as bad as now. I am unable to use cygwin
at all - and as cygwin for me is the only comfortable way to use windows
I am unable to do anything at all :( ( Here comes a very big "Thank
you" to those guys developing cygwin - cygwin is the only thing I really
like about Windows :)
Could it be that the crashes are related to a mapped windows drive I am
linking to from my home directory?
I am sure I am not the first person asking this question and I know
about the naiveness and clumsiness of this mail. Still, I don't have any
idea how to deal with this problem and couldn't find any way out of this
situation by myself.
Thanks for any answer, best wishes, Dietrich
