  1. Install Cygwin. First, download and run either the 32- or 64-bit version of the Cygwin installer, depending on your version of Windows.
  2. Install Required Cygwin Packages. Next, you'll need to add several packages to Cygwin. ...
  3. Download, Build and Install the Latest GCC and you are done

Via MINGW (preferred way)

  1. Go to the MinGW homepage,, and download the latest version of the MinGW installation program, which should be named MinGW-.exe.
  2. While installing MinWG, install gcc-core, gcc-g++, binutils, and the MinGW runtime, but you may wish to install more.
  3. Add the bin subdirectory of your MinGW installation to your PATH environment variable, so that you can specify these tools on the command line by their simple names. And you are done.

I just bought a laptop with Windows8 is pre-installed. It uses several partitions and First I thought of removing it completely. However, I've paid for it so first let it be (by the way it is completely unusable for somebody who has used UNIX/Linux over the past 25 years).
Now I have shrunk one Windows partition to 250 GB to install Ubuntu on. However, when I start installing the first thing that's asked is a device for the boot loader installation. I give /dev/sda6 (which is the partition I would use for Ubuntu) but it complains that it is used for mount point / (natural) and it want a separate partition for the bootloader code which should be marked as a "Reserved BIOS boot area".
I assume it will need an area for the grub loader in the boot-area but there is of course already the WIndows boot code. As extra information: I install in legacy mode as UEFI is too new for me.

Currently I'm trying to install Hadoop 2.6.0 on a Windows 7 enterprise computer. I used the following guide

I already fixed some previous problems by installing a correct version of Protocol Buffer. But now ran into a new problem.

        [HELP 1] 

I searched the internet and found that perhaps my MSBuild was causing the problem, but I check my PATH and it contained the MSBuild path to the correct location. I'm using .Net Framework 4.0

I tried running "mvn clean install" and from the tests I got the following errors.

Test set:
Tests run: 14, Failures: 0, Errors: 2, Skipped: 0, Time elapsed: 33.35 sec 

Any suggestion on how to proceed.
