Re: cygwin Compile of NetBSD 1.6

Christos, I can see that you might be frustrated, but your post above is
somewhat rude. Firstly, Chris does not "appear to be familiar" with NetBSD
on Cygwin. He's simply commenting that the that trying to recompile a whole
OS and tools is probably biting off more than you can chew, given your
current level of knowledge (based on the questions you have asked). Yet you
practically accuse him of witholding information.

Sorry, not trying to be rude to Chris or you, infact I've appreciated your help. Am I biting off more then I can chew? Sure, that's the fun of it :) Am I frustrated, not at all! This is for fun, not profit...

Not accusing anyone of witholding information. Just appeared that he[Chris] may have come across this before with the responce that he gave. A responce which was rude, but not a bother to me. If this issue has been worked on before, I as well as all others interested, would benefit from his knowledge, not anyones ego.

Secondly, you ask that others should do the hard work for you. That's a
guaranteed way to annoy people.

Dont want anyone to do any work, hard or easy for me, just asking questions. I appreciate any answers I get.

AFAIK, no one has ever done what you are trying to do before. You can't just
expect someone to have all the answers. Plus, none of the questions you have
asked so far are Cygwin-specific in any way.

I dont expect anyone to have all the answers, or even one answer.

Look, I'm not interested in a "flame" war with the Cygwin list. If my questions are inappropriate, simply tell me and/or ignore them as well as me. Is that so hard to do? Mailing Lists are for questions. If they are not the appropriate questions for the list, dont engage.

Thanks again for the help from those of you who have given it.
