Frozen ROOT with cygwin

Dear Rooters,

I’ve tried to install ROOT 5.08 binary version with win32GDK, on windows XP, as explained in the install web page (I also followed Bertran’s instructions). However when I start Root from a cygwin shell, I see the usual Root window, then the greeting message (“welcome to root …”, etc) and that’s it ! I do not reach to the command prompt.

Since I get no error or warning message of any sort (the root session just freezes there) I fail to see where the problem is …

I will appreciate your help ! Thank you,



Run the win32gdk from an MSdos shell not cygwin
