But I just wanted to have what I want installed automatically
Not having to go through all the things if i wanted to remove and then
install / "reinstall" cygwin.
i checked the cygwin FAQ , since before I had only looked at the cygwin
The solution for me is to keep the package directory separate from the
cygwin program directory. e.g. c:\cygwin and c:\cygwinpk I Select what
I want once, install. That makes my package directory as I want it.
I Make a copy of the package directory.
Then if i want to install cygwin again, I just remove the cygwin
directory copy cygwinpk2 to cygwinpk (oddly does not work from win xp
command prompt, but anyhow). And then I install cygwin, telling it to
install from local directory, and I point it to my directory with the
stuff i want.
Glad you found the solution to your problem in the FAQ. We like when
people look there as well as at other documentation. :-)
