Re: script for installing cygwin?

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
user manual.

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. :-)
