Cygwin Popen object

P: n/a
Is anybody else getting the following error with the Popen object in
cygwin? The code works fine in windows and linux.

File "d:\atg\personal\python\buildroot\util.py", line 100, in System
pipe = subprocess.Popen( command, shell=True,
stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.STDOUT,
universal_newlines=True )
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/subprocess.py", line 554, in __init__
errread, errwrite)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/subprocess.py", line 914, in
_execute_child
self.pid = os.fork()
OSError: [Errno 11] Resource temporarily unavailable

Try rebasing your Cygwin installation. See the README:

/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/python-2.4.README

for more information. Does it solve your problem?
