Maybe it's not installed? Did you make sure the package is installed?

What are you trying to do exactly? Run the startup script? Remember that it's case sensitive.

Did this work previously on the same computer, using Cygwin, or have you only just recently moved to Cygwin on this computer?

For those trying to help Mopop with this one, I'm on FC3 running SmaugFUSS 1.6-ish and my startup script also includes:

limit stacksize 1024k
limit coredumpsize unlimited

and it runs just fine, but if I type limit at the command line, I get: bash: limit: command not found

so I don't know that it's a matter of a missing package, but rather something reading the limit params in startup as if they were executable lines unto themselves.

The startup script uses tcsh, if I remember correctly, so limit might be an internal tcsh command. That would explain why bash can't find it, but it wouldn't explain why it stopped working all of a sudden. Unless of course Mopop changed something and isn't telling us. :-)

Er not that I know of!


#! /bin/csh -f

# Set the port number.
set port = 4000
if ( "$1" != "" ) set port="$1"

# Change to area directory.
cd ../area

# Set limits.
nohup
limit stacksize 1024k
limit coredumpsize unlimited
if ( -e shutdown.txt ) rm -f shutdown.txt

while ( 1 )
    # If you want to have logs in a different directory,
    #   change the 'set logfile' line to reflect the directory name.
    set index = 1000
    while ( 1 )
	set logfile = ../log/$index.log
	if ( ! -e $logfile ) break
	@ index++
    end

    # Record starting time
    date > $logfile
    date > ../area/boot.txt

    # Run SMAUG.
    # Check if already running
    set matches = `netstat -an | grep ":$port " | grep -c LISTEN`
    if ( $matches >= 1 ) then
        # Already running
        echo Port $port is already in use.
        exit 0
    endif
    ../src/smaug $port >&! $logfile

    # Restart, giving old connections a chance to die.
    if ( -e shutdown.txt ) then
	rm -f shutdown.txt
	exit 0
    endif
    sleep 5
end


Thats my startup script.

Eh, I get the same errors but mine just blows through them anyway. In truth since the limits arn't being set and there are no negitive affects for me just comment out the two limit lines:

#limit stacksize 1024k
#limit coredumpsize unlimited

Yeah, you can usually just ignore the limit errors. Since a core dump in Cygwin would actually be a Windows stackdump, they won't be of any help anyway. The rest of the script will run just fine without them.
