Re: R: Manually installing a packages not in the cygwin repositories
Risposta al messaggio di Marco Atzeri :
the cygwin-1.7 can not install the package as
the Macaulay repository miss the setup-2.ini file.
The workaround is to install from a local directory.
You need to create on your "Local Package Directory"
a directory called
Then copy the file
in it and rename it "setup-2.ini"
then create a subdirectory "Macaulay2"
and copy in it the package
In this way you have created the expected structure.
Now run setup-1.7 and choose "Install from Local Directory".
thank you very much for your reply, I have followed your instructions
but I not see the package, I see files:
If I download locally other packages from default repositories I see
packages listed correctly, only in this case I don't see the package but
that strange entries :-?
If this is not possible, I continue to use it from the /foo/usr/bin
path, no problem :-)
