Unknown HZ value! (632) Assume 1024.
Does the warning go away if you run
$ HZ=1024 procps -V
By the way, I tried it here and didn't get the complaint.
It seems someone has set the HZ environment variable to 632 for some
reason. You can verify this with "echo $HZ".
Thanks. I had already tried setting the environmental variable HZ to
1024 prior to receiving your latest message, so couldn't check if it
already had a value. I also use a third party software that had been
compiled with an earlier Cygwin version. I was not sure if that was
affecting my stand-alone installation somehow so the developer of that
software just rebuilt it with the latest Cygwin and I installed that
version. I then restarted my computer and now "echo $HZ" returns nothing
and the error no longer appears, so I think it is resolved, not sure if
it was just the restart or also updating the other software. Sorry I did
not try that earlier.
For what it's worth, the "632" number in the message had been
incrementing occasionally and was up to 641 by the time I received your
email, so I'm unsure what was setting it, but it is no longer an issue.
Thanks for your assistance.
