    Hello,

    I've been trying in vain to get cssh installed under cygwin.  I believe I have perl Tk/Tcl and X11 protocols installed properly.  I can successfully start an xterm under windows and attached is the output of my perl info.

    I'm following the instructions in the README to install it which says to run:
    perl Build.PL
    ./Build
    ./Build test
    ./Build install

    This is what I get when I run ./Build test

    Hit submit too fast.  Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

     
  • I can see one or two of the test failures are bogus - what happens when you just try to run cssh to a host?  Are any errors output then?

    I ran ./Build install and it seemed to go ok.  I'm able to run the cssh command, but it does have some issues like below:

    $ cssh server00 server01 server03
    Opening to: server00 server01 server03
    Cannot determ pid of 'server03 ' window
    Cannot determ window ID of 'server03 ' window
    Use of uninitialized value $win in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10/App/ClusterSSH.pm line 552.
    Lost pid of server03 ; deleting
    server01  session closed
    server00  session closed

    It probably wouldn't hurt for me to delete cygwin completely and start from scratch since I did do some funky trying to get all of this working.

    Were you able to resolve the issue?  I'm running into similar issue with using cssh on cygwin.

    Nevermind, it's working fine after reboot.
