Re: non gui setup of cygwin possible?

You're asking two separate questions here.

To answer the first one: no, there is no command-line-only tool to set up
Cygwin.  You'll have to use the graphical setup.exe application.

To answer the second one: setup.exe supports an unattended install mode,
where it installs everything in the Base category and upgrades installed
packages automatically.  You can even use a trick to install *any* set of
packages automatically -- see my recent reply about the Cygwin package
server.  I don't know if it's fully interactionless (i.e., there's that
"Installation complete" message box that may pop up at the very end), but
it should serve your needs.

If there's any real truth it's that the entire multidimensional infinity
