Just Cygwin and Cygwin application DLLs.
Can you uninstall some unneeded packages?
I'm sure I can. In the course of using Cygwin I've installed plenty of
packages and have also uninstalled some again. And each package in-
stalled has also installed all the packages it depends on, while each
package deinstalled has naturally left all its dependees on my system.
Question: is there some command line tool which lists all dependencies
for a given package? I could then write a small shell script to find
out the list of packages which are not required by any other package.
And if I then find packages in this list which I don't require, too,
I've found some candidates ...
Install the cygcheck-dep package and use the script /usr/bin/cygcheck-dep.
Or switch to 64-bit
Well, it's a bit strange: the hardware in fact IS 64 bit, but the Vista
running on it is 32 bit, because this laptop is a convertible and some
of the tablet specific drivers, for instance for the stylus, were (at
least five years ago) only available as 32 bit versions. So the quest-
ion is: what does 64 bit Cygwin require? Only any Windows on a 64 bit
hardware or a 64 bit Windows on a 64 bit hardware? I suspect it's the
Yes, I think so.
By the way, I don't think you have yet attached cygcheck output as requested in
You are right. That was mainly because my initial problem wasn't of the
kind "What's wrong with my Cygwin installation?" but rather of the kind
"What's wrong with my way to rebase my Cygwin DLLs?". I've appended the
output below, and I really hope you're right, and somebody will spot
something there ...
In the future, please follow the instructions, which say to send the cygcheck
output as an *attachment*. This is to avoid bogus hits when people search the
The only things that jump out at me are the ZoneAlarm warning (which you already
know about) and the fact that you do indeed have a large number of packages
