Well, I just did the same test and it worked fine here (with a revision

I can promise you that my work is Cygwin and not mingw.
Ooops, my mistake. Sorry.
I can also tell
that this isn't the actual binary that I released, since the paths don't
look like what I generate.
First, get the binary from:
It is tla.exe.bz2 (bzipped to save time)
OK, I just grabbed that, bunzip2ed it, and dropped it in the Cygwin bin
directory. Here's what I get:
$ tla register-archive http://www.mega-nerd.com/Arch/2004/
Registering archive: address@hidden
tla get address@hidden/libsndfile--hack lsf
* from archive cached: address@hidden/libsndfile--hack--0--base-0
* patching for revision: address@hidden/libsndfile--hack--0--patch-1
arch_apply_changeset: internal error (patch (1) returned odd status)
patch(1) exit status: 3

This archive is know to work from Linux and MaxOSX machines :-).
My Cygwin installation was updated within the last month.
There is one thing. Are you running on FAT32 or NTFS? If you right click
on a drive and say properties, it will tell you the filesystem. At one
point I thought that tla didn't work on FAT32 because it doesn't have
certain info needed for inode signatures. I just tried running on both
and it worked fine, though.
Now it is possible that the uploaded file is slightly older that the one
I am using, I looked into setting up everything as a proper cygwin
package while I was doing dev work, and I never finished it. So I did
just upload the binary that I am using right now.
Not really. The only thing that is really there is the tla binary, and
it makes sure that you have some dependencies fulfilled. Are you sure
that you have patch, etc installed? Because the default install doesn't
do a lot of the dev packages. I believe you need the sh-utils,
diffutils, and tar packages.
If you want, you can use the cygwin setup program to get it. I have the
cygwin repository at
Basically, when you run setup.exe when it asks you what mirror you want
to use, add a new one with the above path. Then you should have tla as
an package you can install.
Are there any other changes in your Cygwin repository that would not exist
in the default Cygwin installation?
If you want to give it a try and let me know if it works for you. I have
found cases where it still fails if the project names are too long. But
libsndfile--mdev--1.0 shouldn't have any problems.
Well, if nothing else, at least I supplied you with another data point :-).
Hopefully we'll get it figured out, since it is working for me. :)
