Re: Cannot compile Fox toolkit on cygwin


#1

In principle, it’s possible to install both Fox and FXRuby in Cygwin
(I have done that with different versions of both on an XP machine.)
Error 8 seems to be the fubar message of Windows 98 and it seems
to be that a particular address 0x10000(4128768) is already taken,
so it’s a Windows/Cygwin memory allocation thing rather than
anything with FXRuby or Fox.
Recently, I had a problem which may be similar, though I don’t
know exactly, but a rebaseall command somehow allocating
all dll addresses in an orderly way solved the problem:

See Ara Howard’s tips here:

Hope that helps,

Yes, it helps. After run:
sh
rebaseall

Everything goes smoothly.Now I can use fxruby on cygwin.

Very thanks.
