Inetd 1.3.2-14 problems
Wed Jun 13 19:55:00 GMT 2001
I got it working, but I'm not sure exactly how, and the solution has caused
a different (but much less severe) problem. Here's a rundown on what I
did.. maybe it'll help someone you figure it out, or someone else who might
be having the problem
First I backed up the cygwin and blew it away, then removed it from the
registry and re-installed from the web.
still didn't work.
I removed my copy of the cygwin1.dll from the system32 directory and made
sure the path was correct (c:/cygwin/usr/bin), then I couldn't even get the
service to start correctly consistently (which is why I have a script to put
the correct one there to begin with). Put the cygwin1.dll back, now the
service starts and stops correctly, but I still can't get past the
Then I removed the registry addition of the C:\cygwin\usr\sbin\inetd.exe
<etc> suggested in the "inet.....README" file. still didn't work,
then I put set the global CYGWIN env variable to my old settings.. Nothing.
then I reset the CYGWIN env variable to CYGWIN = "binmode tty ntsec" ......
then I rebooted 2 times. And it started to work.
I think it was the "binmode tty ntsec" that did it, but I'm not sure.
Also why the alternate method didn't work.
But Now I can't compile unless I unset the CYGWIN variable (as per mailing
list message from Reid Thompson Date: Fri, 30 Mar 2001 07:41:46 -0500).
Do you have any Idea why it wouldn't work with the reg setting? and is
there a solution to the GCC/ntsec problem?.
