Re: Install hangs

In the process of messing around w/ the scripts in /etc/postinstall I ran into a problem w/ find. In an attempt to find scripts where both the '.sh' and the '.sh.done' versions existed I typed the command:

find . -name "*.sh" -exec ls \{\}.done \;

This caused some strange error messages, and left some stalled processes running 'find' behind. (I can't run this command now because the successful run of setup.exe cleaned them all up, but here's the output of a similar use of '-exec' in find:

$ find . -name "*.sh.done" -exec ls \{\} \;
197 [main] find 16764 fhandler_dev_zero::fixup_mmap_after_fork: requested 0x
430000 != 0x0 mem alloc base 0x430000, state 0x2000, size 1040384, Win32 error 4
543 [main] find 16764 c:\cygwin\bin\find.exe: *** fatal error - c:\cygwin\bi
n\find.exe: *** recreate_mmaps_after_fork_failed

It takes quite a long time to get a command prompt back after these error messages, and it leaves behing a stalled process.

Is this releated somehow to my many failed attempts to run setup.exe, or is it a know problem w/ find?

Could be a rebase issue. Try installing the package, read the README, and
follow the instructions for rebasing your system.

I ran rebaseall (w/ no arguments) and the above find command still fails in the same way. Anything else I can try?

Perhaps this will help:

Is there a way to save the list of installed packages and do a clean install?

See /etc/setup/install.db
