installer bugs? packages tree
Wed Oct 5 03:04:00 GMT 2005
i installed cygwin for the first time yesterday. when i got to the screen
where i choose which packages, i went straight to the root item in the
tree, and set it to "install". the tree seemed to update all its branches
to "install" as well, so i thought "yay!". but when i clicked "next"
button, it told me that i hadn't selected certain packages that were
required for certain other selected packages. then i thought "huh?"
because i had selected to install everything. i was anxious about what
other packages had been missed, because i truly wanted a complete install.
[b.t.w., as an experiment, i went back to the tree view, and laboriously
set every branch to "install". when i clicked "next" this time, that
message didn't occur.]
later on, i wanted to start over and do a fresh install of cygwin. so
(using setup.exe) i tried to uninstall all of it. strange stuff again. i
set the root node to "uninstall" and click "next". again i get a message
that i have chosen to install various packages without their dependencies.
again i though "huh?" because i had chosen to uninstall everything.
