Timestamp discrepancy

The same program using the stat64 related functions from the Windows API doesn't retrieve the same timestamps value when launched from a MS-DOS session as when launched from a Cygwin session.

Error 'fork: retry: No child processes'

  • Kill all Cygwin-related processes (or the rebase command below will report an error),
  • launch C:\Cygwin\bin\dash.exe as Administrator,
  • launch /usr/bin/rebaseall -v.



With the cygutils-extra package, you can copy from (getclip | …) and to (… | putclip) clipboard.
