We have a local cygwin mirror (of kernels.org). Recently, setup fails
with the e have a local cygwin mirror (of kernels.org). Recently, setup fails
with the error that the package ssmtp-2.60.9-2 is incomplete.
But we don't have that package in our mirror, and I don't have that
package installed, as far as I can tell. So where is it getting this
incomplete package from? Our ssmtp directory on our mirror looks like
drwxrwsr-x 2 mirror postdrop 4096 Sep 1 16:31 .
drwxrwsr-x 245 mirror postdrop 4096 Aug 31 18:40 ..
-rw-rw-r-- 1 cameron postdrop 281 Aug 28 21:54 md5.sum
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mirror postdrop 276 Jul 16 16:11 setup.hint
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mirror postdrop 46738 Feb 19 2004 ssmtp-2.60.4-3-src.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mirror postdrop 22325 Feb 19 2004 ssmtp-2.60.4-3.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r-- 1 cameron postdrop 53716 Aug 28 19:20 ssmtp-2.60.9-3-src.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r-- 1 cameron postdrop 24503 Aug 28 19:20 ssmtp-2.60.9-3.tar.bz2
I tried for 15 mins, combinations of trying to uninstall the various
packages (ssmtp, but perl-manpages were another, and perl, and then
ImageMagick ...), so right now I'm removing the entire Cygwin
installation and am about to start again from scratch.
Hmm, that was a serious mistake. Now I get incomplete downloads on
more fundamental files. I think I'll assume our mirror is completely
broken and install from the internet.
