Hello Cygwin Developers,
When I am trying to install various things via Cygwin setup.exe, it stops
downloading stuff for some reason. This maybe due to my internet connection
or router. I have DSL.
I was wondering if the setup.exe could be modified to automatically re-start
downloading the current file it stopped on. The timeout could be 20 seconds
before restarting for example. This way I could get the entire Cygwin with
no problem. Otherwise, I have to restart setup.exe a dozen times, select a
few more packages, and try to download those packages...
Now, if I could get the cvs software to do that too, I could participate in
open source software projects again.
Thanks in advance,
