  1. i'm on vista if that helps... I've just started PSP Programming and i'm using an IDE to coe my programs, but everytime I try to compile the program using make.exe I get an error:

    *** couldn't allocate cygwin heap win32 error 0 base 0x7D0000, top 0x7D3000, reserve_size 12288, allocsize 12288, page_const 4096

    i've tried doing the mem increase thing but that makes no diff.

    hum; I use Cygwin regularly on XP/Pro without problems.

    Suggest running Cygwin update and if it still fails, looks like you need the
    cygwin support forum :(

    The latest versions of Cygwin work, but your "an IDE" could be bundled with an older Cygwin runtime that doesn't support Vista.

    It would help if you leaked a tiny bit more information, like what program is crashing ;)
