I try to compile and run WebKit with Cygwin64. I did get the WebKit package
to compile and I now have a cygWebKit-0.dll, a WebProcess.exe and my
WebLauncher application in my home directory.
In Linux I can start this WebLauncher program which pulls in the WebKit.so
library. This library again uses g_spawn_async() to load the WebProcess
program as a separate process.Then the WebKit library shall do calls to the
WebProcess program which are thus non-blocking.
With Cygwin I run "startx ./WebKitBuild/Release/bin/WebLauncher.exe" which
loads the cygWebKit-0.dll and then tries to execute g_spawn_async() to load
WebLauncher.exe starts to show the GUI and then terminates with the
following error, however:
*** fatal error in forked process - fork: can't reserve memory for parent
stack 0x30000 - 0xFFA00000, (child has 0x30000 - 0x230000), Win32 error 487
I did a rebaseall from the command line and the new base is then set to
5xxx0000. But the above message remains. What can I do to avoid the error? I
also tried the -b option but that did not seem to work. But I think the base
of 5xxx0000 should be high enough to avoid a conflict.
