Your problems are a direct result of using this omnet++ stuff.  The
omnet++ package comes with MingW including MSYS, not with Cygwin.  While
MSYS is based on Cygwin, it is based on a very, very old version of
Cygwin.  Apart from that, this list does neither support MSYS, nor any
third-party installation of Cygwin, but only the Cygwin distro from  So, please install the most recent Cygwin distro,
or ask on another, better suited mailing list/newsgroup/forum.
