Dear Isaac, Aldo

I have lately had to install CYGWIN & SAC on several WIN7 computers, and
I cannot reproduce the error. I assume you have a Win7 system with admin
previliges, and use the latest release of CYGWIN (ver1.7.x)?

Win7 has a rather strict permission policy, which sometimes results in
files opened/upacked under windows are not accesible in cygwin. a
"chmod" ususally helps

I suggest that you unpack and untar the sac-101.3b-cygwin.tar.gz under
cygwin and not Windows

check manually if the install-sh exists in sac-101.3b/config


hope that helps
Andy

  • Andy tells me that one does not need a separate Cygwin source tarball with
    the newest version of Cygwin.

    Question; Is there any reason NOT to upgrade to the newest Cygwin? If
    not, there is no need to have a separate Cygwin source tarball.
