You don't seem to be getting it.
This mailing list does not support the RPM packages that you are trying
to use. In fact, I have specifically discouraged responses concerning
the competing installation that you are using, here.
I have no problems with someone else maintaining a separate Cygwin
distribution but I do not want their support issues to spill over into a
mailing list which is run by Red Hat. This is essentially like sending
SuSE linux questions to a Red Hat mailing list. It is just not
So, let's be very clear:
CONTACT THE OWNER OF THE RPM PACKAGES IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. DO NOT
SEND QUESTIONS HERE.
