Re: Downloading (parts of) Cygwin for later local install? wrote:
is there an easy way of pre-downloading whatever is necessary to do a
later local Cygwin install?

Note: the recommended method of using Cygwin itself is not available to
me, since I only have a GNU/Linux computer on the Net (lucky me ;-)

Wgetting all of <> would seem a tad wasteful
to me (plus I don't know whether the cygwin installer does any "magical
munging" on the packages while downloading).

No magic download munging, no. 'wget' will work and is the recommmended approach if what you want is a mirror.

I trolled the lists and the FAQ, but I seem to be moving in circles.

The FAQ doesn't like trolls. ;-)
