Re: Fw: help win winxp install


Thanks for confirming -- I find it funny that I would have to check mirror upon mirror to find a package needed for a basic part of the packgage. Makes me wonder what I am missing ;) I am not deeply involved in the SW distrbution via mirrors business but I would have thought that after a new release all mirrors would eventually be updated

well, there is a fundamental flaw here in the distribution system then.
i have looked at the versions from (agast!) three different mirrors
and they have so far been completely different. i have found (long
ago, dont know if this was fixed) a version 0.3.4 of bash _on_ that
mirrors package list. o think what we need to do in _this_ case is to
*standardise* (oh my! standardization!) because if we're not careful
we'll end up in DLL HELL.
i propose a round-robin approach, **I am _not_ saying i will do it**
its just a good idea.. that would make it so that if a new version of
the package came out, the main server would have it and we would have
to say WASFM... its too hard

Try another mirror. <> showed me the libintl, linintl1, libintl2, libintl3, and libintl8 packages. As long as you can find the package at <>, there's going to be at least one mirror out there with the package in question.
