in the thread :-( )
I did a complete download at 2003-11-29, with which I encountered the
problems with the "__getreent missing" messages of the G++ compiler and
other tools. So I beg your pardon, that I reported this expericence so
Now with download of 2004-01-24, at least G++ is running, so my problem

shortly after released > cygwin 1.5.
is the bad package, from my point of view.
As some of the packages of 2003-11 were running, like GCC, but some like
Might the team consider to delete or ??update?? the "critical"
components from the FTP download, so that nobody is mislead to download
and use a corrupt release of cygwin-188.8.131.52.tar.bz2 ? As I am a newbie,
I don´t know about the practice and rules with this project.
is a working solution !
