Re: problems running gcc after installation

thanks for the update. I decided to remove cygwin again and reinstall with the same package that I downloaded for my laptop. This worked. The difference being that it was downloaded from a different source. The source that I had the problems with came from ''. I don't know how these get propagated out to the mirrors but it seems to me that this site is missing some packages. When I select packages to install I select everything. I did not have any problems with the download.

thanks for your help...

consider this closed from my end.

Just having problems with 'pymssql' now :)

Hi Jerry,

ld (and also as) is part of the "binutils" package ("Devel" category
in Cygwin's setup program), as can be seen here:

You can use this page:  to search for
the Cygwin package containing a particular file.

I see that you have many "mingw" packages installed, including
mingw-binutils (which has its own ld.exe), but that is for building
non-Cygwin programs. For Cygwin programs (including compiled packages
for Cygwin's Python), you need the "plain" binutils.
