Subject: Updated: lesstif-0.93.96-1 [test release]
Date: Mon, 18 Oct 2004 08:46:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


The lesstif-0.93.96-1 'test' package has been updated in the Cygwin


1) Sync with upstream 0.93.96 release.

2) NOTE: This build is not stable on Cygwin.  For example, nedit crashes
on startup.  The 0.93.96 release will never be marked as stable unless
someone else figures out the problem and submits a patch.  To get
started, grab the source package via setup.exe and look in /usr/src when
it is done installing.  Good luck and happy coding!

By the way, this seems to be a fun error: the stack gets clobbered, the 
process is terminated immediately, it does not seem that DllMain in 
cygXm-2.dll is being called at all (could be part of the problem, or 
could indicate that the problem lies really early in the load process). 
  I once saw an error when trying to debug ddd that said the problem was 
in ntdll!RtlReallocHeap or some such.  Of course, none of this is 
helpful, other than the scare away the uninitiated.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "XFree86"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

utility or Cygwin/X in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
list is the appropriate place.
