I have seen some posts to this mailing list talking
about problems with cygwin setup.exe hanging during
post-install scripts. They mainly blame problems with
I DON'T have a hyperthreaded processor, and still see
hangs with the current stable version of setup.exe (v.
2.510.2.2) It hangs indefinitely during
update-info-dir.sh. My computer is a Pentium-M
1.4GHz, 760MB RAM.
The good news: setup.exe does work fine if I use one
of the unstable versions (v. 2.523) Then I get no
hang and everything seems fine.
I can forward more information if anybody wants it
(like the setup log). I just thought I'd bring to
people's attention that hangs do exist on single,
non-hyperthreaded processors, and that the newer
setup.exe versions seem to fix that.
