Hi: I recently added lynx to existing cygwin installation. When installing Lynx, I noticed it installed a new version of perl. Now when I try to run perl, I get the error: "procedure entry point _getreent could not be located in the dynamic link library cygwin1.dll"You might try including cygcheck output as directed in http://cygwin.com/problems.html.
What do I have to do to resolve this. Thanks in advance.
My WAG, perl needs Cygwin 1.5.5 and you have 1.3.22 or older. Did you update the Cygwin DLL too?
When something is "new and improved!". Which is it? If it's new, then
there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then
there must have been something before it.
