- Subject: running cygcheck...empty packages?
Was notice what appeared to be 'old' versions of some files laying
around, so wanted to verify packages -- "cygcheck -c"
It pops up some packages that are empty. I was wondering both why
I downloaded them (?!) and whether or not I needed them. Some look
"important", others...not so sure... Not a long list, some I know
"should" be able to delete without causing myself undue pain, but
'gcc' and 'gcc-mingw' sorta bother me. If I delete those would my
gcc installations still be happy? Package 'clear' makes sense that
it is clear of any files...*cough*...not really sure why it's there.
I'm not entirely sure where cygcheck is getting its package list, since
I don't see any files in /etc/setup with names like "gcc.lst.gz".
Are these "empty" packages of use?
