- Subject: gconftool hangs during install on win xp 64
When I try to install cygwin 1.5.20-1 on windows xp x64 2003, my system hangs.
It hangs because gconftool indefinitely forks until virtual memory is used up.
I've seen posts similar this problem (re: Oliver Walsh, fork bombs,
gconftool.exe, clear.exe). Clear.exe used to exhibit this same
behavior on my machine, but it doesn't anymore.
I tried selecting "keep" on GConf2 during install, but it still hangs.
