Re: Error Installing Cygwin (setup-x86_64.exe & setup-x86) - No setup.ini.sig found.

Same here. I maintain a local mirror and use my own setup.ini files

The 'setup.ini' files are located in the 'x86' and 'x86_64'
directories; setup is pointed at the 'cygwin-2015-10-16'
If that is the complete directory structure at those two levels then I
don't see how it can't work.  I'm doing exactly the same, save for the
exact directory names.  I'm using the "-mX" switches when invoking
setup.  If you have an x86 or x86_64 directory under cygwin-2015-10-16
however, then setup would never look any further (you can't nest mirror

Setup does essentially this (and finds the following setup files on my
system when it gets started in the top-level mirror directory, provided
that $arch="x86"):

$ find -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -name $arch | \
   xargs -I: sh -c 'for f in :/setup.{xz,bz2,ini}; \
   do [ -e $f ] && { echo $f ; break; } done' && \
   find -mindepth 2 -maxdepth 2 -name $arch | \
   xargs -I: sh -c 'for f in :/setup.{xz,bz2,ini}; \
   do [ -e $f ] && { echo $f ; break; } done'


What's the result you're getting?

Thank you for your help. Here is the output from running your command:

For arch="x86":

For arch="x86_64":

This is as described above by my ASCII art. I have been using this directory structure successfully with previous versions of setup. Is this layout incorrect?
