- Subject: Solution to: Couldn't duplicate my handle & Win32 error 6 when using gcc helloworld.c
I present a solution to one of the cygwin on win2k problems:
I ve read through the mailing list messages and found only one answer:
complete new install
OK. Anyway a solution. But not for me.
So, what is the problem. If you download almost the complete net distrib
and install it on win2k and try to compile a c file with gcc you (could)
get the following
-precompiling works without error
$ gcc -c helloworld.c
101 [main] gcc 1304 proc_subproc: Couldn't duplicate my handle<0x58>
for pid 1276, Win32 error 6
$ gcc helloworld.c
58 [main] gcc 1212 proc_subproc: Couldn't duplicate my handle<0x58>
for pid 540, Win32 error 6
installation problem, cannot exec `/usr/lib/
collect2: ld returned 255 exit status
-hey, you poor system do not want to give me a stupid handle?
- I think I will persuade you to give me one!!!
$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/2.95.3-5/specs
gcc version 2.95.3-5 (cygwin special)
- great: Et la lumiere fut. OK, the bible helps sometimes....
just deinstall gcc using setup.exe
Wow, really a great trick. Isn t it?
I am not a unix expert and I am not interested in exploring the process of
cygwin, but I think there is something wrong with the netinstaller!
work on it!
I did not check the autotools, only gcc
