Try another mirror. <ftp://mirrors.dotsrc.org> showed me the libintl,
linintl1, libintl2, libintl3, and libintl8 packages. As long as you
can find the package at <http://cygwin.com/packages/>, there's going to
be at least one mirror out there with the package in question.
well, there is a fundamental flaw here in the distribution system then.
i have looked at the versions from (agast!) three different mirrors
and they have so far been completely different. i have found (long
ago, dont know if this was fixed) a version 0.3.4 of bash _on_ that
mirrors package list. o think what we need to do in _this_ case is to
*standardise* (oh my! standardization!) because if we're not careful
we'll end up in DLL HELL.
i propose a round-robin approach, **I am _not_ saying i will do it**
its just a good idea.. that would make it so that if a new version of
the package came out, the main server would have it and we would have
to say WASFM... its too hard
Mirrors are not a controlled hierarchical system. Mirrors *pull* information
from cygwin.com. cygwin.com does not *push* this information out.
If you have any questions about how mirrors are handled and where to report
those that seem out-of-date to you for some unreasonable period of time, see -
