Re: Found case with "Download incomplete / try again"

Who supports Cygwin Setup? I guess this list is the best to report problems with setup.exe.

It's acceptable but not preferred. See:


I don't think this is a setup issue either.
It sounds like the download failed at one point, and has been cached somewhere between you and the server. Ergo it's now failing due to being incomplete on your machine and on the cache.
You could /try/ wget-ing the appropriate .tar.gz manually and placing it in your local repository - setup should check the md5sum (or whichever thing it actually checks) and then move on to the next file.

Anyway, I believe cygwinports has its own list (Yaakov?) - imo this discussion should probably be there..


Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
