|Date:||Sat, 16 Aug 2008 22:08:35 -0700|
Using Lennart's patched Emacs.
I have a current Cygwin installation with many packages. Note that I'm running
with cygwin 1.5 -- not the experimental 1.7:
[D:\Emacs\emacsw32-23.0\emacs\bin] cygcheck -c cygwin
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
cygwin 1.5.25-15 OK
When I attempt to launch patched emacs, it generates the following message
at the console prompt from which it was launched; while the emacs frame is
displayed, it is unusuable (program is non-responsive).
172 [main] ? (3944) D:\Emacs\emacsw32-23.0\emacs\bin\emacs.exe: *** fatal er
ror - Incompatible cygwin .dll -- incompatible per_process info 0 != 168
Renaming my copy of cygwin1.dll in the cygwin installation before starting
emacs suppresses the problem.
This behaviour did not occur with the previous Emacsw32 version I was using
(a build based on emacs 22). Perhaps I didn't see it because the previous
emacs was compatible with the cygwin version I have?
Ideally, emacsw32 would not be bound to any particular version of cygwin,
so that it could be compatible with both current and experimental
