Time for some techniques on trying new snapshots.
Snapshots are a work in process. The builds are not tested to the point of
being an official release and are supplied as a convenience to developers.
But, if you wish to try a snapshot then you need to provide a means of
fallback. If you don't, you'll get burned.
Here's what I do.
cp -rf d:/Cygwin d:/CygwinSnapshot
mount -f -b d:/Cygwin /
mount -f -b d:/CygwinSnapshot /
[install] snapshot into d:/CygwinSpanshot
[test] using the shortcut to d:/CygwinSnapshot/Start.bat
[no] Try to debug what's wrong and report
[yes] backup d:/Cygwin then install snapshot into d:/Cygwin
NOTE: You can't use both shortcuts at the same time. It's either one or the
other and not both. You'll have to have a testing environment on a separate
machine for that.
