Seeing this when trying to install a Perl module:

I rebooted the machine and started a single Cygwin window alone, no
other applications running, and tried the CPAN command again.

No success.

So: I tried to execute rebaseall and rebase from a CMD.EXE window under DASH:


Thu 01/04/2018  7:10:13.23 c:\cygwin\bin>dash /bin/rebaseall
rebaseall: only ash or dash processes are allowed during rebasing
    Exit all Cygwin processes and stop all Cygwin services.
    Execute ash (or dash) from Start/Run... or a cmd or command window.
    Execute '/bin/rebaseall' from ash (or dash).



I briefly searched the mail list and the Cygwin online docs, no
foolproof (essential here!) instructions to run rebaseall under DASH
from CMD.EXE.


Or, should a rebaseall solve the "child info fork" issue above?

Thanks for any info.
