I am having a problem installing perl from the cygwin setup installer.
choose to add the perl as a install choice from a particular ftp site,
installer will retrieve the file via ftp but I will then get a message
about a checksum error. The message says:
Installation error (Checksum failure for
Continue with other packages?
I am not sure why it complains about the checksum. In this particular
am installing on W98,SE. I can install the base cygwin and other
fine. If I choose different ftp sites it still fails.
I have also installed cygwin with perl successfully on a different
windows 2000 professional laptop with no problems.
Finally as the last piece of information I had previously installed the
with all modules on my W98,SE machine about a month ago. But I had a
to reformat my hard drive and reinstalled the os therefore I needed to
cygwin and that is when I hit my perl install problem.
It is as if a month ago the checksum must have been working but now it
not. Does anyone know how I can debug this?
