Hi Siegfried,

I am running a "vanilla" edition of the Cygwin ARM tools under Win98SE.

I'm not sure what arm-pid is, but I have not seen this error even after 
running arm-elf-gcc numerous times. (In fact it is running in the 
background behind this mail session right now).

Obvious question: have you checked available disk space? How much physical 
memory is in the machine? I believe (long time since I was inside this 
code) that the VM implementation in Win9x will not expand the pagefile 
indefinitely, it will only expand it up to some specific multiple of 
installed physical memory.

I use the graphical configuration tool. It is not 100% stable but I do not 
have this problem. If you have trouble even opening bash, I would suspect a 
cygwin problem. I am using Cygwin 1.1.4.
