Hi. I'm facing some problems with Cygwin 220.127.116.11 under Windows Vista,
the most annonying is puttycyg not working anymore.. So I realized that
I need to downgrade to the last version supported by puttycyg
It would probably be more appropriate to say "the last known working version
of cygwin1.dll with puttycyg", since Cygwin 1.5.x is backward-compatible
with older versions.
Have you reported the problem to the list (see
<http://cygwin.com/problems.html>)? Doing so could make your need for
an old, unsupported version of the DLL moot.
The thing is. No previous versions of cygwin are available for install.
So how can I downgrade my current (and latest) Cygwin version to the
earlier 1.5.24-2 ?
Current mirrors should have this. Your local download directory might
have it too. If it does, just tell 'setup.exe' to install from your
local directory and 1.5.24-2 will show up as an option. If you don't
have it in your local download directory, use 'wget' or your other
favorite tool to download it from a mirror and put it in your local
download directory. There's also the "Cygwin Time Machine" (google it).
Note that neither process for installing old DLLs is recommended and
the older versions are not supported by this list.
