    Compiling Rom24 MUD with cygwin

    I am trying to compile rom24b6 with cygwin.
    This is what I get:
    Code:
    C:\Programs\Rom24\src>make
    gcc -c -Wall -O -g  act_comm.c
    make: *** [act_comm.o] Error 1
    It SHOULD tell me something about the errors, but it just says "Error 1"? It's quite strange though, I searched google, no identical problems.
    This is the makefile:
    Code:
    CC      = gcc
    PROF    = -O -g
    NOCRYPT =
    C_FLAGS =  -Wall $(PROF) $(NOCRYPT)
    L_FLAGS =  $(PROF)
    
    O_FILES = act_comm.o act_enter.o act_info.o act_move.o act_obj.o act_wiz.o \
              alias.o ban.o comm.o const.o db.o db2.o effects.o fight.o flags.o \
    	  handler.o healer.o interp.o note.o lookup.o magic.o magic2.o \
    	  music.o recycle.o save.o scan.o skills.o special.o tables.o \
    	  update.o
    
    rom: $(O_FILES)
    	rm -f rom
    	$(CC) $(L_FLAGS) -o rom $(O_FILES)
    
    .c.o: merc.h
    	$(CC) -c $(C_FLAGS) $<
    Looks OK to me...

    Maybe I have some packages missing... currently I have:
    Code:
    alternatives, ash, base-files, base-passwd, bash, binutils, bzip2, coreutils, crypt, cygutils, cygwin, cygwin-doc, diffutils, 
    editrights, findutils, gawk, gcc-core, gcc-g++, gcc-mingw-core, gcc-mingw-g++, gdbm, grep, groff, gzip, less, libbz2_1, 
    libgdbm, libgdbm-devel, libgdbm3, libgdbm4, libiconv2, libintl, libintl1, libintl2, libintl3, libintl8, libncurses5, libncurses6, 
    libncurses7, libncurses8, libpcre0, libpopt0, libreadline4, libreadline5, libreadline6, login, make, man, mingw- runtime, 
    mktemp, ncurses, run, sed, tar, termcap, terminfo, texinfo, w32api, which, zlib

    Do you have gcc bin path added to your environment variables? Error 1 usually relates to a path not found.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Code:
    PATH=alotofstuff;C:\Programs\Cygwin\bin
    Yes... otherwise "make" would not work or it would say can't find "gcc".

    It breaks somewhere between checking if the file exists and processing it, because whatever I put into the .c file, I always get the same thing, but if I rename the file, I get "No rule to make...".

    well... make is complaining at line 1 "CC = GCC". I don't know how cygwin environment paths work. Maybe someone can help. However, that is the line make is complaining at.

    If it's complaining at the first line how does it reach "act_comm.c" file then?

    I've tried to compile other things too and I get the same error. It must be something with cygwin...

    It seems like my "gcc.exe" acts weird. It just doesn't create the .o file and gives no errors, so make says it can't find "act_comm.o" file.

    Edit: I got it working using the cygwin command prompt instead of command prompt.
