I don't see any FAQ regarding rebaseall - hence this post.
It appears that rebaseall is required ocassionally to get cygwin [esp
python] working. [having been bitten by this a few times,] Each time I
do any cygwin updates - I make sure I run 'rebaseall' before doing
Q: Does cygwin setup run rebaseall either during initial install or
during subsequent updates? [guessing no]
Q: Is it safe to say: 'if cygwin is installed from scratch - rebaseall
is not required'
[for our tools] cygwin/python is a pre-requisite - and our users
appear to stumble across this issue regularly. And asking users to
always run rebaseall is an extra hurdle]
