- Subject: Broken setup.ini
I recently updated my Cygwin to 1.3.20 and I save all downloads to the
ftp directory within C:\Cygwin before installing from the local
directory. The problem is that, over time, the setup.log file seems to
have lost track of what I've downloaded such that I can't install
packages that I've downloaded. Some categories are completely missing,
such as "System". I can't start from scratch again as I'm on a 29k
dial-up connection. Is there any way of re-initialising the setup.log
and re-installing what I've already downloaded?
This problem seems to develop when downloads are unsuccessful, for
whatever reason. It seems the setup.log gets it wrong somewhere.
