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

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?

Have you considered the registry? Installing Cygwin updates the registry - it's where the mount points are recorded. If your app is using a POSIX-style path anywhere (eg /tmp/...) this would not be found, and if your app is dependent on the text/binary mount switches it would behave differently.

A quick check would be to temporarily rename your Cygnus Solutions
registry keys (in HKLM/Software and HKCU/Software), or else use
mount to experiment.
