I am trying to build java 1.5(mustang) on windows using cygwin and visual studio. I found no documentation on the sunsite which uses cygwin.
have managed to get the compile started.
But it aborts giving the following error
RC : fatal error RC1109 : error creating /cygdrive/c/DOCUME~1/Administrator/build/control/make//../build/windows-i586/tmp/java/hpi/windows_threads/obj/hpi.res
Seems rc.exe is not able to create hpi.res.
Googling around says that occurs because of write permission
error. I am able to touch a file in the directory.
What seems to be the problem?
Could anybody point me to a url, or possibly a short tutorial which mentions the steps for successfully building java.
Thanks in advance.
