Introduction

Build instructions for YAPET under Cygwin. The build and configuration steps are basically the same as on a real UNIX system.

Prerequisite Cygwin Packages

Prior building YAPET under Cygwin, you need to install following Cygwin Packages in addition to the base system packages:

  • gcc4-core
  • gcc4-g++
  • libncurses-devel
  • make
  • openssl
  • openssl-devel

Configuring, Building, and Installing

Refer to the INSTALL file in the source tarball yapet-1.0.tar.gz.

Insecure File Permissions

When creating or reading files stored on a Windows server, YAPET may complain about insecure file permissions. In that case, move the file to a local disk or start YAPET with the -s command line option as described in the YAPET manual page yapet(1).
