when I try to startup CyGnome I get an error about missing the cygdb-3.1.dll. I checked and indeed there is no such dll on my pc. However, I do have a cygdb-4.1.dll in C:\cygwin\bin dir.
I seem to have a version that is too recent :-)
The uname command gives me CYGWIN_NT-5.1.
What am I missing here ?
cygdb-3.1.dll is provied in package libdb3.1, and
libdb3.1 is provided in Cygwin net release.
You can find it in any Cygwin mirror.
Visit http://cygwin.com/packages/db3.1 for detailed info.
To ensure package dependencies, use at least two URL in Cygwin setup.exe at the same time,
one for Cygwin net release and the other for cygnome.
