For what it's worth I have been unable to run the latest release of
Perl (5.8.0-3) under WinME, but it seems to work fine under Win2k. The
problem I see is the dll's as distributed under cygwin-multi-64
directory with that release cause errors when trying to run the CPAN
utility (perl -MCPAN -e shell). I am unable to install anything out of
the CPAN archive in that way. I just get pop-up boxes saying 'error in
<some>.dll' and then the system hangs or crashes randomly after that,
but it doesn't crash unless I run Perl 5.8.0-3 first.
I tried rebaseall and it still had the same problems. I verified that
the dll's were in fact modified/rebased and that they all loaded at
unique addresses. It seems that the following dll's loaded from
/lib/perl5/5.8.0/cygwin-multi-64int/auto/* all have this problem on
WinME. I believe that an error in cygwin1.dll that I saw this time was
just colateral damage after the other dll errors. WinME has never been a
model of stability - lol. I'll have to wait on testing anything else
until I have a chance to get physical access to that host and reboot it.
If you have any other suggentions of what to look for that would be
appriciated. Unfortunately I don't have a great deal of time to spend on
this at the moment, so rolling back to the previous version may be my
only option for now. I guess I'll just have to live with it for now.
