I want to install cygwin on a laptop that doesn't have Internet access, so I
want to use a CDROM.
I've made a CD with cygwin packages, I have not respected the same structure
"release/directoryofpackage" in the ftp mirror.
I've read in FAQ that you have to use "install from internet" feature, but
that does setup freeze.
When I run "setup" in the laptop it only appears two packages.
I've done a query in the mailinglist archive with no success either.
So where should I place the dirs with the packages and how should I run
I just did something similar, which worked apart from the problem I
posted before yours. I downloaded (only) to my D:/ drive, then switched
my C:/ drive to a new installation with no internet access, and
installed (only) from the files on the D:/ drive. It follows that if you
preserve the file structure it should work. CD's are cheap, I suggest
you try again. If it's the file names that are a problem, use zip.
