The Cygwin port is now in svn. Note that the changes are not tested,
and I will need to change a few minor things (eg. need to free memory
dynamically allocated by Cygwin). However, it is good enough if you
want to give SGE under Cygwin a try (ie. help me test the port!).
You will need to check out from trunk:
% svn co https://gridscheduler.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gridscheduler/trunk
And compile with:
% ./aimk -no-java -no-jni -spool-classic -no-hwloc -no-secure -no-qmon
-no-remote -no-qmake -no-qtcsh
When you hit compile error in authuser, execute:
% touch CYGWIN_X86/authuser.o
% touch CYGWIN_X86/authuser
(And then continue with aimk.)
Finally, the install process will complain about missing executables,
so you will need to use "touch" or other ways to trick it from

Yup Beat, I was one of the troublemakers who refer people to your site & docs!
And related to Windows user mapping, Daniel wrote the "Notes About
Grid Engine on Windows" article a few years ago.
I am planning to reuse some of the code in the original SFU port for
the real native Windows port.
