Re: gcc / gfortran 5.x




Thanks to all the lead me the way.
Using cygwin's time machine I was able to build a working cygwin enviroment with gcc/gfortran at version 5.40. (http://ctm.crouchingtigerhiddenfruitbat.org/pub/cygwin/circa/64bit/2017/09/05/224214/)

I noticed that cywgin's gcc/gfortran has moved whole sale to gcc 6.4.
How can I get the latest release of the 5.x branch (32 and 64bit)
back?

Use the Cygwin Time Machine, some other post had the link.

I'm trying to build a legacy suite of programs that I know builds
under 5.x, but fails miserably under 6.4.

Been there, done that.  In general, trying to freeze the compilation
environment is a losing proposition and it's better to fix up the
sources instead.

Achim.
