Re: [Mingw-msys] A gift for Max - bash-2.05b




Hello all,

I'm running Windows Vista 32-bit on a Fujitsu-Siemens Intel Core2  T7200,
2.00GHz, 2GB RAM laptop and I'm having problems with running msys 1.0.11 
binaries.

When running msys 1.0.10 sometimes, and this was not reproducible, I 
could not
start msys sh.exe, make.exe or any other msys binary that depends on 
msys-1.0.dll.
I would alywas get the following error:
  C:\msys\1.0\bin> sh.exe
  AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x715B0000, RegionSize 0xE0000, State 
0x10000
  C:\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn't reserve space for cygwin's heap, 
Win32 error 0

The error would sometimes go away after I reboot the windows, but not 
every time,
meaning that sh.exe would start and I could run msys binaries.


Then I downloaded the new version of msys-1.0.dll (v1.0.11) with 
workaround for vista
64 as stated in.

The 20070729 patch worked - I could start msys sh.exe and make.exe every 
time.

My problem now is: I get the same heap error with msys-1.0.dll v1.0.11 
(20070929 patch).
I did not install nor change anything on my system (as far as I can 
recall).
Msys worked fine for a week or two, and all of a sudden I get the 
following error
every time I  try to start any of msys binaries. Tried to reboot but 
error remains:

C:\msys\1.0\bin> sh.exe
      0 [main] us 0 init_cheap: VirtualAlloc pointer is null, Win32 
error 487
AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x71110000, RegionSize 0x70000, State 
0x10000
C:\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn't reserve space for cygwin's heap, 
Win32 error 0

C:\msys\1.0\bin>.\make.exe
      0 [main] us 0 init_cheap: VirtualAlloc pointer is null, Win32 
error 487
AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x71110000, RegionSize 0x70000, State 
0x10000
C:\msys\1.0\bin\make.exe: *** Couldn't reserve space for cygwin's heap, 
Win32 error 0


On another laptop (same manufacutrer, same model, same hardware) on msys 
1.0.10
everything's working fine - sh.exe starts, make.exe starts, never had a 
problem
nor a reason to upgrade to msys 1.0.11.


Did anyone else experience the same problem?
Any suggestions that might help?
