Subject: is latest 1.7.9-1 alpha status? Bugs, files missing, ..?
Date: Sat, 23 Jul 2011 22:25:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20110723174512.GA15382@rex4> (raw)


i just installed latest 1.7.9-1 with setup.exe programm in WinXP Prof. 
I configured nothing so far. I ran startx -- -multiwindow -clipboard 
and it works, great!

To enable shared memory (MIT-SHM) I ran 

Anmeld@AAnmeldung ~ cygserver-config
/usr/bin/cygserver-config: line 6: $'\r': command not found
/usr/bin/cygserver-config: line 10: $'\r': command not found
/usr/bin/cygserver-config: line 13: $'\r': command not found
/usr/bin/cygserver-config: line 14: syntax error near unexpected token `$'\r''
'usr/bin/cygserver-config: line 14: `request()

There seem to be DOS carriage returns in it. 

A little bug in 1.7.9-1 ? 

# cat cygserver-config | head -n 20
# cygserver-config, Copyright 2003 Red Hat Inc.
# This file is part of the Cygwin DLL.

# Directory where the config files are stored


  if [ "${auto_answer}" = "yes" ]
    echo "$1 (yes/no) yes"
    return 0
  elif [ "${auto_answer}" = "no" ]

okay, i run dos2unix cygserver-config  on my linux machine (lenny). 
I copied cygserver-config back and it was running a little bit. 
I asked me whether I want to run cygserver as service, I answered
"yes" the the script prompts: "line 176: cygrunsrv not existing" 
And indeed, cygrunsrv is not delivered in my installtion. 

Is 1.7.9-1 alpha status? - Why is this version advised for 
download and install? 

Where can I get a running version? How can I delete the installed 
version? - Deleting c:\cygwin directory?
