Subject windows build of erlang
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2009 21:49:30 GMT
Hi,

if you are building erlang under cygwin to follow the couchdb 0.10
windows instructions, turn off your on-access virus scanner (McAfee in
my case), it leaks memory, may be because of cygwin who knows, but
results in nasty Windows crash with lots of CreateProcessA errors and
nothing else works in the OS either.  A hard reboot is the only way
out.

Turning off the scanner works ok,

I had to make the following change to

otp_src_R13B02-1\lib\gs\tcl\Makefile.in

TCL_TAR = @TCL_TAR@
ifneq ($(TCL_TAR),)
ifeq ($(TARGET),win32)
TCL_TAR = binaries/win32.tar.gz
endif
endif

instead of

ifeq ($(TARGET),win32)
TCL_TAR = binaries/win32.tar.gz
else
TCL_TAR = @TCL_TAR@
endif

and I wasn't able to get the enviroment to pick up wxwidgets or
openssl but everything else was good!

Norman
