I just now had the same problem that David T-G reported long ago.
Somehow Harold had installed "libintl1",
but David hadn't, cause he'd used the Default settings.
cygintl-1.dll was missing when cygwin installed from a local directory.
(in the last step, "PostInstallLast",
a popup "dll missing" appeared several times).
As an effect, cygwin just didn't work properly (e.g. didn't find most programs).
What did I do (wrong)?
a) download to local directory (default) from uni-kl.de
b) install from local directory (default)
As this is called "default", there can't be much wrong with it, can it?
Your email messages actually helped me to single out the problem:
libintl2 IS actually downloaded & installed properly,
but libintl1 is NOT. And that's the problem.
I manually added libintl1,
and manually "reinstalled" the "PostInstallLast" scripts.
Didn't work. pffff.
Then I totally erased every hint to cygwin from my disk
(the directory, and manually all registry entries)
- WHY DON'T you have a normal Windows "total uninstall" feature?
... and started from scratch again.
But this time with the (manually added) libintl1
- and everything went fine.
So my suggestion:
Please repair the "default" settings to also include that
cygintl-1.dll / libintl1
thanks a lot!
