- Subject: best way to re-install and keep cygwin configuration
I am getting ready to re-install XP and I would like to avoid having to
completely redo my cygwin install. Is there a way to export the current
settings (installed packages, etc) and then re-import it after re-install?
I was thinking of just copying my cygwin_install directory that has
setup.exe and the mirror folders and then reintroducing that to the new
install, or just copying the entire cygwin root folder as well.
Is there a prescribed method for this?
