Q: I've read this monstrously-large FAQ, searched the news group
archives, but didn't find anything helpful. I am totally lost.
Q: I don't have time to download all these messages, not to mention
looking through them. Can't you DJGPP gurus help me?
A: DJGPP News group is famous for its outstanding user support. To get a fast and effective solution to your problem, you will have to supply the relevant info about your system, and describe exactly how things went wrong for you. To gather this info, do the following:
go32-v2program (it's in your
bin/subdirectory) and save its output.
ENVIRON.TXT, the output of
go32-v2, the contents of your
CONFIG.SYS, and what GCC printed during compilation with the
-vswitch (if your problem is that GCC won't work).
symifyon the stack dump, and post the output of
symify -o dumpfile yourprog
(See detailed description of symify, for more details.
Be warned that you might get several dozen messages in reply to your request; this is not meant to overflow your mailbox or sabotage your relationship with your system manager, it's just the usual friendly response of fellow DJGPP'ers to your lonely cry for help. Some of the replies might suggest what you already checked and reported in your original message, or even miss the point altogether. Be ready for this and don't flame us for trying to help you as much as we can.
