RE: Cygwin RCS Build Instructions (or sometimes ash does not like a.out)


Thanks for your reply.  With Jeff Hu's reply ("This is because of a problem
in the readlink() function.  Chris checked in a patch on 10/31.") in mind I
upgraded my Cygwin configuration to use gcc 2.95.2-3, fetched the install
script from the URL you provided and renamed install.exe as per your
instructions.  After that the build went linke a charm and RCS is running
great.  Thanks for the help.

Please post some more details like OS (e.g., NT/2000/98), file system
(e.g., FAT, NTFS, CIFS), etc.  The output from cygcheck -s -v -r wouldn't
hurt too.

FYI, I'm only a casual RCS user and have only used it only on NT with NTFS
and CIFS.

Only if you don't have the following installed as install:
