- Subject: a standard place to get cygwin
Once again I'm required to use cygwin.
Once again I'm having trouble.
I notice that when I download from different places, I get different
things included. In particular, I just downloaded /installed from anl.gov and
told it to "install" all. First time I open a cygwin window I notice a problem ...
it gives me two lines of telling me it can't find grep ... (this happens while
it's going through the stuff in profile.d). I check /usr/bin and sure enough
there is no grep in there. I do a find in the entire cygwin directory ... it's
nowhere to be found. I try copying grep from a far previous version of cygwin
... doesn't work (some kind of missing DLL error).
This has happened previously on other installs and is among the primary
reasons I never use cygwin unless I'm forced into it. I think if I could just
find 'the right site' that had everything in it ... one I could depend on to always
include the sensible stuff at least (grep, gawk, Image Magick, the standard stuff) ..
that this would be a much less irritating experience. Does such a site exist?
Where is THE place from which to download cygwin?
