Greetings, Rashi,

I really need help/clue on this:

We have our system qualified with cygwin and we are facing
some issue  in msgsnd/msgrcv functions.
We have got the fix of this problem but the code change is in ( under cygserver) by calling msleep

Any time you insert sleep calls into something means you have a timing issue and are just masking the real problem, which will probably show itself in a different way later.

I'll defer to the Cygwin devs for real analysis, though.

We tried to download source from the path provided but getting
compilation error as we have compiled it using latest cygwin package.

Downloading the whole tool chain for that release of Cygwin might work better for you. Also, there is a specific build process for Cygwin documented on the website, that I believe someone else already replied to you about. If not, search the mail archives.

Now our problem is ..we do not have any option left as latest cygwin
is giving us some other problem like (semaphore not getting created )

Please help us is any of the below things are possible:
1, Can we compile only cygserver.exe with changes ?

Probably.  Why not?

2. Can we get complete package and source through which we can build

I emailed you privately with the process to pull all of that release + source. I never heard back from you and my logs don't seem to show any access to the paths for that release. If you have further problems downloading it, please email me privately.

I know my problem sounds very odd..But please help. We are really stuck in this.

Thanks for sharing path.

We have downloaded source and compiled.

We are getting compilation error on cygwin stating /bin/sh:
../../.././winsup/cygwin/mkglobals_h: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter:
Permission denied

There is no perl of this path and even not there is any other path too.

Should we download it as separate?

Also attached makelog output with compilation error

Please help...

Further to this we could now see that "NO MORE PROCESS" error is
displayed due to some of the process not get de-queued from memory

Our application use fork process to create child and then pass SIGUSR1
for SIGCHLD to terminate child process.

Sighandler is installed on the start of process.But this process is
not getting invoked many a times due to which child process does not
get killed.

We are working on how to recreate this using simple test case . As
this problem occurs mostly is heavy load and at random.

We are also working to take latest cygwin and check on that .

But we are getting error on SEMOPEN function as "semget , prot or table full"

Please help us .

Hi ,

We have call to "msgsnd" function that fails after processing 3 to 4 messages.

We tried both Block and NO Block mechanism (IPC_NOWAIT)

Also we changes configuration of cygserver.conf .This increases
message processing to 8-10 messages.But fails after that.

Attached is cygserver.conf file for reference:

With the latest version of cygwin (2.4.1 release) our program gives
compilation error for Yacc and LEX modules.( We are checking on this)

Please can you suggest something on EAGAIN issue
