The latest version of Cygwin as of 03/08/2020
|License:||Free to use and share|
|Latest Wine Version Tested:||5.13|
Maintainers: About Maintainership
The installer works, though there are a few (unimportant looking) errors for a few of the default packages.
Very little. Mintty almost opens but fails with a "fork: Resource Temporarily Unavailable" error. Running Cygwin's bash.exe from the Wine Command Prompt does work, but it exits after trying to run just one command (like "ls")/
What does not
Not usable due to above issues. I have not tried to install additional software beyond the default selection.
What was not tested
Everything not mentioned above - I was not able to get far enough to test anything else.

You can work around it by build Wine from source with this one line patch:

Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work (wine 5.15), I get the good old "Couldn't compute FAST_CWD pointer" error now. Quite possibly I haven't built WINE correctly, I don't know.

The FAST_CWD warning however seems harmless to me. Is there any other issue you are experiencing?

Also, while bash now doesn't exit after running only one command, none of the commands seem to work, for example:
Never outputs anything, regardless of what path I give it. None of the options elicit any output either.

In Wine 5.14 wineconsole itself is currently hanging my whole desktop until killed, so it will take me a while to get set up again.

I've now even gone as far as using a LXC container, but am unable to make an i386 container for my distro (Ubuntu 20.04): it always fails with an error and then deletes the logs so I can't see what went wrong.
For the moment I'll build under Ubuntu 18.04 containers, and hope those work for me anyway, but this is far from ideal I think.
