Hey folks,

Two things - first of all, as of 00:00 GMT appears to be down. Hope it's nothing too serious.

Secondly, can you please tell me how to obtain, via the setup installer, a prior version of the Cygwin base installation? I'm using some 3rd party software tools that were built upon Cygwin 1.3.13, and am having versioning issues when trying to run them under 1.3.20.

Um.  "3rd party software tools"?  If you are using software distributed
by someone else then *they* should be providing you with both the binary
and sources that the software needs.
They have a cross compiler that uses the cygwin compatability layer. They have modified and distribute a version of this layer, which is built upon cygwin1.dll version 1.3.13. However, they distribute with their tools only a minimal subset of cygwin necessary for their tools to run. However, in the project I am doing I need not only the 3rd party cross compiler, but also native gcc and binutils etc.

However, simply running the 3rd party tools under the current cygwin release does not work (versioning errors), and similarly trying to run cygwin binutils under this 3rd party "cut down" cygwin doesn't work either (same problem).

In any event, 1.3.20 is compatible with 1.3.13 so, you should be all
Yeah that's what I would have thought, but it doesn't work. I've tried just about every combination I can think of, and it all falls in a heap.
