After applying the attached patch to setup 2.188, I got a clue that the
problem was that my 'local' repository was on a remote share
'//polgara/private/'. So, I copied the
//polgara/private/software/windows/cygwin-new tree over to my local disk
-- and things were kinda okay for a while.
I got to the chooser screen, and it listed the bzip2 package and
CURRENT NEW PACKAGE
1.0.1-6 1.0.2-1 bzip2: sdesc...
1.0.2-1 libbz2_0: sdesc...
When I said "install", I briefly got the progress screen -- and then a
BSOD. memory dump sent separately. This is on W2K, McAfee *was* turned
So, the problem with "unable to get setup.ini from setup.ini" seems to
be due to problems handling windows shares in the "local_dir" variable
Now, my problem list is;
