I know there are lots of such postings "Resource temporarily unavailable".
But using lates snapshot (2011-08-03): there are changes by C. Faylor printing
cause of fork failure.

I've gotten the following error message while running make in parallel
using (make -j8).

      0 [main] sh 84444 child_info_fork::abort: address space needed by
'cyggcc_s-1.dll' (67F00000) is already occupied
c:/programme/cygwin/bin/sh: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

The question is:
Is there somethink I can to to avoid this error?
Why is this address already occupied?

There are losts of postings about rebaseall, peflagsall ...

My system Win7/64, Intel Xeon CPU, 12MB RAM.
uname -a --> "CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 PC01028 1.7.10s(0.249/5/3) 20110803 18:07:45
i686 Cygwin"

Please can anyone give me a hint.

best regards
