Dear Suhaib

There is no problem on downloading on Linux.

Yes, I had no problem to download it.
After i download all the file. i packed all the file with tar cvf  src.tar

I used BIN mode in ftp in the Gygwin.

As i said it all the files which i downloaded from CVS are not tar or zip
file. I have just tared the downloaded files.

My Cygwin mount is as follows:

BASH.EXE-2.04$ mount

Device                   Directory        Type      Flags
c:\cygwin\bin          /usr/bin           user        binmode
c:\cygwin\lib          /usr/lib             user        binmode

I downloaded src.tar file which i tared on the Linux to win98 with ftp.
And I extracted it and i got cygwin-xfree directory under src directory.
I have done make World in the directory /src/cygwin-xfree.

But I have always same Error Messages.

I am confusing which files i should compile for  Xfree?
xc40-1.tar xc40-2.tar xc40-3.tar xc40-4.tar on the
/src/cygwin-xfree from CVS?
