Win98 + wait stuff = broken (was: Programs randomly crashing.)
Thu Oct 2 20:15:00 GMT 1997
I have the exact same problem too...
This is what i know (or at least what i think i know) so far:
- the wait code in wait.cc is busted under win98...
- configure scripts, or the Makefile from ash, and a bunch of other
things generate the following error:
(please confirm if this is the same error your getting)
wait_for_any: WaitForMultipleObjects failed, win32 error 6
wait_for_any: Trying again.
wait_for_any: That didn't help, win32 error 6
- this error originates from wait.cc, i found this out by just looking
through the patches
I havent been able to try fixing this, as i dont have the entire source,
and i dont have another machine to compile on anyway. (i doubt it would
compile on this one, considering the bug)
