Re: cygwin rebaseall not working

Well I've installed cygwin from a local repository so I don't think any of
the packages were corrupted. I tried the command but there are no .lst.gz
files in /etc/setup. You were right about the crashes, I had a few when I
first installed cygwin. I'll try reinstalling everything and see if it
works. Thanks
