Re: Found case with "Download incomplete / try again"

It does not look like a download issue. I tried downloading whole GNOME several times on several computers and each time setup failed with the same error. I also tried deleting all downloaded from CygwinPorts (sunsite) files.

After some experimenting it looks like their configuration breaks something inside setup.exe. The error is not MD5 related (but there is one other component with invalid MD5). It looks more like a bug in handling source only components.

Who supports Cygwin Setup? I guess this list is the best to report problems with setup.exe.

It's acceptable but not preferred. See:


I don't think this is a setup issue either.
It sounds like the download failed at one point, and has been cached somewhere between you and the server. Ergo it's now failing due to being incomplete on your machine and on the cache.
You could /try/ wget-ing the appropriate .tar.gz manually and placing it in your local repository - setup should check the md5sum (or whichever thing it actually checks) and then move on to the next file.

Anyway, I believe cygwinports has its own list (Yaakov?) - imo this discussion should probably be there..
