Re: Installation with root privilage: can't download Intel Fortran F90 compiler
It won't work because Cygwin is not a Linux emulator. There are no

Linux session under Windows.
There is nothing strange about installing Windows ifort in accordance
with instructions (not using cygwin), then using cygwin as a build
environment to run ifort, at least for 32-bit builds. For 64-bit
builds, some work-arounds are needed, as cygwin tools like ar and link
