with all the texlive packages.  I can change mirrors
and that doesn't help either.

Here's the cygcheck output for the texlive package itself.
The files it claims are missing are in fact in the package
tar file, and while the missing elements can be different
for each texlive package, they still seem to be in the
package tar files.

them, or maybe I'm the only one with this problem.

"cygcheck -v -c texlive" produces:

Cygwin Package Information

Package              Version        Status
Missing file: /var/lib/texmf/postinstall/texlive.lsr from package texlive

There's no problem here. /var/lib/texmf/postinstall is used for the new streamlined TeX Live postinstall process. The files in it are markers indicating that something needs to be done, and they are renamed with ".done" appended when it's done. The same thing is done with normal postinstall files in /etc/postinstall, but I guess cygcheck knows about them.

I don't know if there's something I should do to avoid this problem or if cygcheck just needs to be tweaked.
