My alternatives are set such that emacs points to emacs-w32. I also have
emacs-nox and that works fine.
If I run 'strace emacs-w32' I get an error dialog:
"The procedure entry point WebPDecode could not be located in the
dynamic link library C:\cygwin\bin\cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll."
Is this a known problem? If not I can attach cygcheck.out and the output
from strace if that will help.
It's not a known problem.
It is now. I can reproduce the problem (only on 32-bit Cygwin). I'll
look into it.
The problem turns out to be related to the recent update of libgd3.
Reverting to the previous version fixes it.
Notice that cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll, which occurs in the error dialog
above, depends on cyggd-3.dll:
$ cygcheck /usr/bin/cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll | grep cyggd-3
Marco, is it possible that the libgd3 update requires a rebuild of
