Re: Problem with a cygwin App - Broken on a pristine system until I install cygwin, cygwin1.dll doesn't seem to be enough

Aye, it's a GPLed app. I didn't want to provide a URL to the app's page
unless asked, but if you want I certainly can, if it helps narrow the problem

Hrm, next time I get a chance to sit down in the CS lab and hammer away at it
for a while (I currently only have a Linux box available to me without making
a trip across campus) I'll try strace. As the previous poster suggested, I
had already tried cygcheck, and all it spat back at me was SDL.dll,
cygwin1.dll, and a bunch of standard Windows DLLs. Perhaps there's a compiler
switch that I missed?
