Thanks for the fixes. I tested setup-2.889-12-g1cf567.x86_64.exe, and after selecting category view on
the installer and changing "Default" to "Install" at the top of the list, it appeared to select both the
pre-selected and my own selected packages for installation, which if I recall correctly, is how it worked
before this issue arose. I did get one postinstall script error:
fontconfig_dtd.sh exit code 2
Here's the related error from setup.log.full, along with info on the command that ran just before that one:
2018/03/06 17:57:14 running: C:\cygwin64\bin\dash.exe "/etc/postinstall/0p_update-info-dir.dash"
Rebuilding info directory
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `/usr/share/info/latex2rtf.info.gz'
2018/03/06 17:57:31 running: C:\cygwin64\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile "/etc/postinstall/fontconfig_dtd.sh"
could not open /etc/xml/catalog for saving
add command failed
2018/03/06 17:57:31 abnormal exit: exit code=2
I looked in /etc/xml/, and the catalog file was there, containing the following:
<!DOCTYPE catalog PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog V1.0//EN" "http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/entity/release/1.0/catalog.dtd">
Is the error from fontconfig_dtd.sh something to be concerned about?
