- Subject: setup troubles: Download incomplete
I've decided to reinstall my whole cygwin (I interrupted a 'default' setup
earlier on, and that seems to have left my system in an undefined state
So, I used the setup on the cygwin website, clicked till the All category
showed Reinstall, and off it went downloading stuff. At some point it
flashed up a dialog box "Download incomplete. Try again?"
Yes! I say. It goes through the initial screens, starts to download, and
"Download incomplete. Try again?"
and so on.
This happens with both the default setup and the latest beta
I thought it might have to do with "out of disk space", but I'm no sure.
When I cleaned up a bit, setup did download some more stuff, but then I got
the same message (still 93 MB free).
Any help will be appreciated, because I now have a plain NT machine here, no
cygwin on it. Disaster!
On the disk space front, can anyone tell me why setup stores copies of files
in subdirectories named after the mirror. This means that I end up with
several copies of the same .tar.bz2 files, as I often have to switch mirrors
(they seem to be very busy once in a while).
