Re: Installer of Cygwin 64 seems to freeze when executing /etc/postinstall/ - version 2.874

I try to install cygwin 64 on a windows 7 PC in order to let users open

I have selected only 3 components of X11 to complete the default
selection : xinit, xlaunch and Xorg server.

The installer seems to freeze when it executes /etc/postinstall/
Information about the progression of the installation is blocked during
several minutes with 99% Cygwin - Setup

If I don't cancel the installation, it seems to finish correctly.

17:36:33   running: C:\cygwin64\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile
17:55:47   Changing gid to Administrators
                 Ending cygwin install

Is it a normal behaviour ?

Thanks for reporting this problem.

No, this is not normal or expected.

Perhaps you could manually run the postinstall script with 'sh -x /etc/postinstall/' to see where it is getting stuck?
