- Subject: Installing Cygwin with a USB thumb drive
I really enjoy Cygwin and would love to have a portable copy on a
thumb drive. I use Cygwin all the time, and obviously I can't install
it on every computer I go on, especially since many are not mine.
I saw many instructions on the web for doing it, but I wanted to see
if their were instructions that were "recommended", I know that likely
there will not be an official but I figured at least if it works.
Is it fairly easy to install it on a thumb drive? I'm not worried if
it's hard or command line, because I've install Gentoo Linux before
and have much experience with command line, I just don't want it to
screw up current Cygwins on my machines. Most PCs I use it on, will
not have Cygwin, but perhaps I need to do something on a PC that
already has Cygwin, I don't want it to screw up the local Cygwin.
