I have installed Cygwin recently on my Windows 98 SE machine.
Following the instructions, I then installed a "binutils" package for
AVR cross-compiler (this one:
tar xvfpz usr.tar.gz
Stuff un-packed and installed, without reporting any error.
Unfortunately, I can't get it to work - for example.
"BASH: make: command not found"
Looking at the cygcheck results, it also reports that make and other
essential bits are "not found". I can't figure out why that should
be, since (I think) the "devel" stuff seemed to be installed from the
So, maybe something essential is missing. If someone knowledgeable
could have a look at the attached cygcheck.out file and tell me
whether the problem is in my basic cygwin installation or the
additional binutils package, or a general idea of what's wrong, I
would be extremely grateful!
