Additional Comments

You must run cygwin.bat in wineconsole, otherwise you just get a crash starting it. Inside wineconsole, things just seem to work. But anything that relies on a cygwin symlink, like gcc, will fail. A workaround for gcc is to replace the cygwin symlinks with linux ones, e.g. $ cd .wine/drive_c/cygwin/usr/i686-pc-cygwin/bin $ for a in *; do ln -sf ../../../bin/$a; done After that you can compile and run hello, world from within the wineconsole where you ran cygwin.bat. startxbin.bat seems to be missing, too. (Perhaps another victim of missing symlink support?)
