somewhat rude. Firstly, Chris does not "appear to be familiar" with NetBSD
on Cygwin. He's simply commenting that the that trying to recompile a whole
OS and tools is probably biting off more than you can chew, given your
current level of knowledge (based on the questions you have asked). Yet you
practically accuse him of witholding information.
Not accusing anyone of witholding information. Just appeared that
he[Chris] may have come across this before with the responce that he
gave. A responce which was rude, but not a bother to me. If this issue
has been worked on before, I as well as all others interested, would
benefit from his knowledge, not anyones ego.
Dont want anyone to do any work, hard or easy for me, just asking
questions. I appreciate any answers I get.
Secondly, you ask that others should do the hard work for you. That's a
guaranteed way to annoy people.
I dont expect anyone to have all the answers, or even one answer.
AFAIK, no one has ever done what you are trying to do before. You can't just
expect someone to have all the answers. Plus, none of the questions you have
asked so far are Cygwin-specific in any way.
Look, I'm not interested in a "flame" war with the Cygwin list. If my
questions are inappropriate, simply tell me and/or ignore them as well
as me. Is that so hard to do? Mailing Lists are for questions. If they
are not the appropriate questions for the list, dont engage.
Thanks again for the help from those of you who have given it.
