Errors creating new 32-bit Cygwin installation




Hi,

I'm trying to create a new 32-bit Cygwin installation, but the
installation is failing. I'm getting errors during the postinstall
script phase, starting MinTTY reports forking errors, and attempting
to rebase in ash fails with "fork: can't reserve memory for parent
stack" errors.

My best guess is that this is characteristic of the installation being
too big for 32-bit Cygwin, but I'm not confident of how to confirm
whether that's the problem or if there's something else going on.

I've attached copies of all the error messages, together with the
stackdump files that were in the root of the installation directory,
and a redacted cygcheck.out file gathered from a PowerShell session.
I've not attached any setup log files, as the entire c:\cygwin\var\log
directory was empty.

Can anyone confirm whether this is a
too-big-an-installation-for-32-bit problem, or give me an idea what
else might be going wrong?
