I was following this thread and time will tell. Something you're maybe
not aware of that the cygwin1.dll soon will be distributed to thousends
of people who didn't even heard about cygwin. How come?
You may have heard about BOINC if not take a short look @
It is used to run Linuxcode inside Windoze. For exaple the burp project
will use it to run povray on windoze. http://burp.boinc.dk (Don't waste
your time visiting the page it is offline today because a server
update). I can imagine a lot of problems resulting from this for people
using cygwin but donate there idle cpu time to number crunching when
there two different versions. Let's wait and C ...
Any problems from this installation should be pretty easily solved by
just blocking all email with the word "boinc" in it.
I'm willing to even make the filter more sophisticated than that, ifLook out for the messages with "maybe you're using the wrong version of
cygwin1.dll". But people who do cygwin should know.
And God said"Let there be light."But then the program crashed because he was trying to access the 'light' property of a NULL universe pointer.
