Subject: Build-Problems within cygwin

Build-Problems within cygwin

From: Matthias Mohr <Matthias_at_mohrenclan.de>

Hi everybody,

I always built my own rockbox versions within a cygwin environment.
This worked for years - but since a while I have several problems for which I need some help.

"make all" works fine

then I usually do a "make fullzip"
this now brings a lot of the following errors:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
cp: omitting directory `/cygdrive/c/Prog/Projekt/RockBox/rockbox.orig/'
cp: missing destination file operand after `/cygdrive/c/Prog/Projekt/RockBox/rockbox.orig/icons/'
Try `cp --help' for more information.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(cp --version: cp (GNU coreutils) 6.10)

and also these two ones (BTW: the missing files do exist!):
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Error opening file: /cygdrive/c/Prog/Projekt/RockBox/rockbox.orig/fonts/nimbus-12.bdf
Error opening file: /cygdrive/c/Prog/Projekt/RockBox/rockbox.orig/fonts/helvR10.bdf
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It does not matter for which target platform I compile (I tried Sansa e200 & iRiver H300),
the warnings (errors?) always occur when calling "make fullzip"

Cygwin is up to date and rockbox is also an up to date SVN version...

Is the compilage with cygwin no longer supported or are there new limitiations with the
cygwin utilities or are this scripting bugs?
BTW, a "perl --version" returns this:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for cygwin-thread-multi-64int
(with 8 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

with regards,
Matthias (aka Massa)
