Hi folks ,

I am hitting the following problem while using gmake :-

617 [exiting thread] gmake 9576 cygthread::stub: erroneous thread
activation , name is NULL .

The problem detail is as follows :-


As I looked into your archieves i came across a fix :-

www(dot)mail-archive(dot)com/cygwin at cygwin.com/msg66723(dot)html

                                                            Now I am
indeed using an old cygwin version and can not update it due to
dependency issues . Do you have a workaround for this problem ?

As per my understanding this problem will not be seen if we limit the
maximum number of threads for a process on cygwin (this will of course
make it slower , but that is fine ) . Am I Correct ?

If yes , how can we do it for cygwin ?

Thanks for all your help.

Thanks and Regards,
