I'm just writing a cmdline tool in perl for faster setup for the power-user. It's named cyginstall and has the usual rpm options

I actually wrote one of these years ago. It's checked in here:

For completeness:
Just the two modules Cygwin::Setup and Cygwin::Setup::ByDir are missing.
But I have them somewhere from upset. But upset is no more, there's genini now.

BTW: Just for those modules we renamed the perl archlib recently
to i686-cygwin. So we will have no nameclash in the future.

It is fairly full-featured, I think.  I don't remember if the dependency
handling works right or not.  I think it can install cygwin but not

Even the interactive prompt is there.

I use it to install packages when I'm about to release so I know it at
least kinda works.

It may have problems with cygwin-1.7.0 since it has no logic for finding
the cygwin root.

I have never released this because I didn't want to deal with the
support issues but if someone else wants to take it over, I'd be happy
to relinquish it.

Hmm. I'll check if I like it or if I like mine more. :) -- Reini Urban
