Re: Problem with Xemacs, cygwin and maybe XP
This faq is not clear enough and should be updated. It does not give the
location of the snapshots: http://cygwin.com/snapshots/
which can also be accessed from the cygwin main page, see on the very left
the item Snapshots and click on it. Then you have to
download the file cygwin1-xxxxxxxx.dll.bz2 and install it by bunzip2 first
changing its name to cygwin1.dll and replacing the old cygwin1.dll, this is
usually enough in
spite of what the faq says.
