I have a winNT4 workstation and would like to install
cygwin. I have downloaded setup.exe, README and
Following the instruction in the README file, I done
(i) created a directory (h:\apps\cygwin)
(ii) created a directory for root
(iii) copied setup.exe and cygwin-20000301.tar.gz
files in to h:\apps\cygwin.
(iv) opened dos cmd prompt, cd'ed in to
'h:\apps\cygwin' dir and executed setup.exe.
(v) when it asked from where I wanted the root, I
(vi) I then selected to install cygwin from current
directory (i.e. type 'd').
Please note, 'c:\' is where WinNT dir exists and 'h:\'
is a partition where I install my apps on my local
After 2 hrs I do not see any activity in the dos
window. I noticed my machine has got extremely slow.
When I quit the setup application (Ctrl C) my machine
is still very slow and not able to close the dos
window. I am also unable to shutdown my NT machine.
Instead on each occassion I needed to do a cold reboot
(which worries me as I am using NT).
I have noticed various subdir (and contents) created
in h:\home\amulla\root (lib, bin,usr, var).
I can not install cygwin over the internet (otherwise
I'll be hanged by my boss).
I would be extremely grateful if you could give me
some assistance. Thanks in advance.
