Re: error setting up ipc-daemon


When I recently installed Cygwin anew on a system not my own and wanted to enable the Cygwin inetd, I had what might be the same problem. One thing that tipped me off was the fact that although the message was about the service not starting up "in a timely fashion," the failure occurred essentially immediately upon my attempt to manually start the service.

It turned out that the system-wide PATH must contain the directory holding the Cygwin1.dll. I think that's because inetd is in /usr/sbin and Cygwin1.dll is in /bin (a.k.a. /usr/bin). Were they in the same directory, I don't think a PATH addition would be required to locate dependent DLLs.

You'll also want to make sure that all your Cygwin mounts are system mounts, or they won't be seen by inetd and it may not be able to find other files it needs
