Re: Cygwin / Windows 7 Heap Problems

Hey, I'm wondering if there are any cygwin gurus who can shed some light on crashes that look to be Windows7 64bit compatibility-related. When running a perl script through cygwin/bash on a fresh windows 7 64-bit install, I encounter errors similar to what others have corrected using "rebaseall". These errors occur erratically, and cannot be reproduced every attempt. I have successfully rebased a few times before (through ash), which only lead to the errors happening less frequently (or possibly some old errors being corrected).

A snippet of the errors I'm running into are:

       2 [main] perl 2312 C:\cygwin\bin\perl.exe: *** fatal error - couldn't
allocate heap, Win32 error 487, base 0x1310000, top 0x154A000, reserve_size
2330624, allocsize 2334720, page_const 4096
6119825 [main] perl 576 fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp before
initialization, retry 0, exit code 0x100, errno 11

Perhaps you just need perlrebase. Have you run that?

A: Yes.
Q: Are you sure?
A: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation.
