Can somebody summarize where we're at here. I've been noticing all this
email about slow startup and I'm excited by the inclusion of domain
accounts using /etc/nsswitch.conf, etc. I downloaded a newer version of
Cygwin a few weeks ago (I'm seeing 1.7.34) and I experienced the
slowdown myself. Unfortunately I'm too busy to actively participate but
it looks like some good progress has been made. Should I update or is
everything still in snapshots?
Fixes are in snapshots, as well as test releases (currently 1.7.35-0.4)
which can be installed with setup*.exe.
Hmmm... https://cygwin.com/faq-nochunks.html#faq.setup.snapshots says:
You cannot use Cygwin Setup to install a snapshot.
Hmmm... maybe you should try to read Yaakov's entire sentence?
It is not clear from Yaakov's sentence that the phrase "which can be
installed with setup*.exe" applied to test releases, snapshots or both.
So why didn't you just look for the test release in setup then? I don't
see how complaining about the exact wording of a mail trying to be
helpful(!) does improve your situation.
Chill man! First off I wasn't complaining - I was simply pointing out
Secondly, why didn't I just install from a test release? Because like
most of us here I have a real job and occasionally fires happen which I
need to drop everything else and help put out. I've never installed a
test release and though I was about to look into it, emergencies cropped
