Re: Can't run baseall

Right. Starting from the beginning and looking at the simplest/most common
potential causes makes the most sense. And providing as much detail as
possible about what's going on is a good idea as well. However, if the
obvious solutions don't help, then you might want to consider this option:
I tried the solution mentioned above, but it didn't help. However it did
put me on the right track. I started carefully killing Windows
processes. After I had killed enough of them, Cygwin started working
perfectly again and I could do my compiles. So I think I was looking in
the wrong direction with rebase in the first place. I am still narrowing
it down, but I found that two pieces of hardware I had added lately, a
webcam and a Sprint Wireless network connection were running lots of
processes all the time, even when that hardware was not installed or
running. I believe the culprit is one of these. When I figure out
exactly what process was causing this, I will let you know.
Thanks for the help.
