Just curious ...
Normally I do NOT use setup-x86_64.exe to "install" (download) a source
code tarball ... I will go directly to the source (i.c. a mirror).
This time I decided to use setup (in order to verify a hypothesis) ...
As usual I execute this procedure in 2 steps:
1. Download without installing
2. Install from Local Directory
(I do not maintain a local mirror)
Step 1 presented no problem.
I got a surprise when I executed step 2: when I selected the source code
tarball, setup informed me ... it was going to install "debuginfo".
I was not surprised to see that intention fail ...
Only after I had modified setup.ini, where I removed the "source:" line
from tar-debuginfo, setup was able to "install" the source code tarball.
A mirror (at least the mirror I use) does not have a source-code tarball
in a *-debuginfo subdirectory.
(to clarify: the "source:" line is present in the "tar" entry as well as
in the "tar-debuginfo" entry of setup.ini -- I removed the one from the
the "tar-debuginfo" entry).
Did I miss anything?
