I know this is probably a very beginner question,
however I've scoured the internet and the Cygwin FAQ's and user guide
and i can't seem to find anything that works.
For starters, I'm running Windows Vista 32-bit.
I run the Setup.exe file and select all the extra modules I require (on
top of the default install), the extra modules i install are; bison,
make, automake, libiconv, libtool, python interpreter, gcc, g++, gdb.
The installation progresses all the way through downloading all the files,
then when it seems to be checking all the files it freezes then I get
the windows blue screen of death. When the computer starts up again
there is only the Cygwin libs it downloaded and half the installation in
my C-Drive. I've tried repeating this installation 4 times now (after
deleting all the old Cygwin files each time). I've disabled my AVG
anti-virus software, and tried a different download mirror each time but
still no luck.
Has anyone run into this issue before or have any suggestions on what the issue may be
