MAME development tools update

Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:31 pm

Hi,
I have a new PC, so I started from a clean slate.
Following the instructions on this websit I downloaded the development msys64-2017-02-05.exe, installed it in C: (so I did NOT run autorebase.bat as suggested), started "win32env.bat", set up the GIT environment with

Code: Select all

git config --global core.autocrlf true
, gave my credential with

Code: Select all

git config --global user.email f205v.f205v@gmail.com git config --global user.name "f205v"
, cloned the source with

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/mamedev/mame.git
, moved to the right directory (CD MAME) and finally

Code: Select all

make
. When it finished I closed the win32env with "exit".
All went good and I ended up with my MAME compiled exe.

Now the fun begins, I tried to update the development tools, so again I started "win32env.bat" and followed the instructions on the development tools page:

Code: Select all

pacman -Sy pacman -S bash pacman msys2-runtime --noconfirm --needed
, and closed the console. Started it again with "win32env.bat" and

Code: Select all

pacman -Su --noconfirm
. Following the instructions on the screen, I was asked to terminate the window closing it forcily not using the "exit" command. I did it, restarted "win32env.bat", gave again

Code: Select all

pacman -Su --noconfirm
and finally I got 97 packages updated (a few warnings popped up here and there, but the process complete anyway).

Now it is time to update my source tree, so again I start "win32env.bat", move to the right directory (CD MAME), give the command

Code: Select all

git pull -v --no-rebase --progress "origin"
and I get the error: fatal: BUG: disabling cancellation: Invalid argument

Can someone please help me and point out what I'm doing wrong?
Thank in advance for your support.
Ciao

I went through the whole process again, with the same (sad) result.
Anyone with the same experience?
Thanks.
