Re: Where to find a reliable provider of CygwinX?
I want to terminate this discussion, originating from my concern for
consistency among distribution providers.
Originally I reported on a successful installation of basic Cygwin, i.e.
without X, followed by a failing attempt to install X. Of course I have
been aware all the way that X did not come with the basic installation,
and I have no idea of how to install X on top of it without using
setup.exe by Cygwin. Still I am asked to specify how I obtained the
packages for X, because they are not part of the basic installation.
I see no reason to spend more time on this, the experience of which is
like being part of an absurd comedy, to say it mildly. I feel confident
that I can overcome the technical issues if I use the time on them instead.
End of discussion.
