I have cygwin installed OK on my windows XP machine. I installed from a
local directory after running wget to grab everything I thought I would
need. I want to use cygwin-xfree instead of Hummingbird Exceed to
connect to my department's linux server, so I started up setup.exe
(version 2.416) again and chose the XFree86-Base packages.
Then I clicked next, and the installer just disappeared. I've run this
several times on different computers and always gotten the same results.
Does anyone have any ideas?
The only thing I can think of is that I'm somehow missing something the
setup program needs. I have a complete copy of everything starting at
the cygwin directory, except for the mail-archives.
This is the exact syntax of the wget command I ran to pull down my copy:
wget --passive-ftp --recursive --no-clobber --no-host-directories \
--cut-dirs=2 -X/pub/cygwin/mail-archives -R '*-src.tar.bz2' \
I reran this script to refresh my local copy and I still had problems.
Our work firewall+proxy setup made other install methods impossible for
me. I have tried them already.
Does anyone know what is going on?
Thanks for the help.
