Cygwin 2.6.1 32-bit post install failed by /usr/bin/perl.exe
Mon Jan 16 07:29:00 GMT 2017
I recently tried newly install Cygwin 2.6.1 on 32-bit Windows 10.
Stop old cygwin
ren cygwin cygwin.old
Run setup-x86.exe for full install excluding *x86_64* modulues.
However, the post install didn't seem to end. At that time, ps
on mintty showed a lot of defunct perl processes. Then I tried
replacing /usr/bin/perl.exe with the one I built from the source
one and a half years ago.
mv perl.exe perl.exe.orig
ln -s /cygdrive/c/cygwin.old/usr/local/bin/perl.exe .
It did the trick! Now new cygwin is running with no problem!
I don't know what yielded the result. The file sizes of them
very differ because 5.22.3 was srtipped but 5.22.0 wasn't:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 yamaoka None 12829 Jan 15 12:54 perl.exe.orig*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 yamaoka None 12829 Jan 15 12:54 perl5.22.3.exe
-rwxr-xr-x 2 yamaoka None 71801 Oct 21 2015 perl.exe*
-rwxr-xr-x 2 yamaoka None 71801 Oct 21 2015 perl5.22.0.exe*
But I cannot believe strip broke it. cygcheck for them didn't
show meaningful difference. It's a mystery.
