I am having trouble installing cygwin on a machine running Win98. I have
downloaded setup.exe to my machine, the latest version currently available.
I have run setup.exe and downloaded the default selection of packages.
Setup.exe has properly computed checksums. Then setup.exe hangs. I am
able to press ctrl-alt-delete to access the task window, which shows
setup.exe is not responding, and end the task. I have tried several times
and setup.exe won't go past this point. I never see the list of packages
available to select which ones to install. There is no anti-virus software
running on the computer during installation. No files are written in
/var/log. My primary hard drive is c:, my cygwin directory is d:\ and my
package directory is d:\package. I had cygwin installed on this machine
about a year ago, then uninstalled it, following the directions in the faq;
is it possible that something is left from the prior installation that is
causing the problem? I don't know what to do next. Can anyone help?
