Re: Cygwin fork failure

I have built a C++ server program called 'analyzer'. But when I try to

The *** lines indicate the errors.

Version info: The analyzer was built with G++ 3.3.3, on WinXPSP2. Here
is the output of cygcheck. So why does the fork call fail?

If running 'rebaseall' doesn't help (see the README) and 'analyzer' doesn't use any DLLs that were built as part of that package (in which case you need to tell 'rebaseall' about them), then try:
