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

If setup.exe is not supported for other projects, maybe they should not even try using Cygwin setup, but who am I to tell how things are done here... I will resend my complain to cygwin-apps mailing list.

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.

Then you should report this problem to the CygwinPorts mailing list and let them deal with this problem.

If this truly is a setup.exe problem we're not going to rush out a new
version to fix a problem which doesn't affect the cygwin distribution.
