Netbeans/cygwin installation problem

  1. Apr 2, 2011 #1
    Hello, I'm a bit of a noob so bear with me. I have gotten all of this to work on one computer but on installing it on another computer I've run into problems. I followed the instructions at this link



    to a tee but when I try to compile a program on NetBeans it gives the following error:

    /bin/sh: .dep.inc: Permission denied
    make: *** [.depcheck-impl] Error 1
    BUILD FAILED (exit value 2, total time: 765ms

    I've done the installation over and was vigilant to not make silly mishaps and I still get the same error. Do you know what the problem could be? Thanks for your help!

    Looks like there's a file named ".dep.inc" that is either un-openable or missing. The first thing I do after an install is go to the top of the directory tree and un-set read-only permissions all the way down suing the properties panel in a file-manager program. Often when copying from {C,DV}D's files get stuck in read-only.
