RE: installation problem

I am having a similar problem.  I'm using Win98SE.  This is my first ever
installation of Cygwin, so I think I don't even have a /var/log yet.  When I
run setup.exe, I accept the defaults of c:\cygwin, 'all users', and 'Unix
text', and then it crashes (Illegal operation).

I also have McAfee AntiVirus installed.

How do I run the debug snapshot of cygwin you mentioned?

Hmm, these aren't the logs of the session when the crash happened.  If you
got them from the same directory as setup.exe, please attach the ones from
/var/log instead.  FYI, setup.log.full gets overwritten every time you run
setup, so if you have run setup since, please try to reproduce the crash
before you attach the log file.

As for the OS [Operating System], I meant the version of Windows you're
