I am running Win2K SP4. I have a shortcut to run zsh on my desktop that
simply runs "C:\cygwin\bin\zsh.exe".
After powering on the PC or rebooting, I get the following error when I run
the zsh shortcut:
20 [main] zsh 688 fork_copy: linked dll data/bss pass 0 failed, 0x442000..0x4427F0, done 0, windows pid 1532, Win32 error 87
/etc/zprofile:6: fork failed: resource temporarily unavailable
306356 [main] zsh 688 fork_copy: linked dll data/bss pass 0 failed, 0x442000..0x4427F0, done 0, windows pid 1528, Win32 error 87
/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/miked/.zshrc:41: fork failed: resource temporarily unavailable
The second error (zprofile:6) is the 'id -un' command.
I looked up Win32 error 87, and here is the text for it:
87 The parameter is incorrect. ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER
Generally, if I close the errant zsh window and run the shortcut again,
everything is fine. bash works just fine - no problems.
Any suggestions why this is happening? I've Googled for a while now and
can't find anything.
