setup.ini just lists available packages.  Use cygcheck to find out
what you have actually installed.

When a package is installed it also lists something like:

version: 4.13-1

Doesn't it?

No. setup.ini lists the packages that are available for install. Often there is a "previous" version as well as a "current" version. This allows you to choose, when running setup.exe, the previous version if you don't want to install the current version for some reason. Occasionally there is also a test version. None of this has anything to do with which packages you have installed.

dvipdfm.def no longer exists in TeX Live 2013, and you shouldn't have
to create it.  Please give the details of what you were doing that led
to this error message.

1. pdfetex -progname latex $*

2. dvipdfm -p a4 $*

I just tried these commands with no problems:

$ pdfetex -progname latex sample2e.tex

including the part about attaching cygcheck output.


If you read it, you'll see near the end which packages you have installed.

The one suspicious thing that I see is your path. For example, the cygcheck output includes

  Warning: C:\bin\awk.exe hides C:\cygwin\bin\awk

Could there be other things in C:\bin or C:\cygwin\opt\cross-mint\bin that are interfering with Cygwin?

Anyway I'm interested in the crashes in the first place.

Sorry, I can't help you with that.
