Re: Error Installing Cygwin (setup-x86_64.exe & setup-x86) - No setup.ini.sig found.

I install also from a local mirror, not signed ini files (yet) and I
haven't had any problems.  I happen to have installed a new machine just
this week so I know this also works OK.  If there is a setup.xz,
setup.ini shouldn't even be looked at and consequently no setup.ini.xz
file should be required.

That would indicate it hasn't actually found any packages in whatever it
used as setup.ini.  What's your directory layout?  I can't make any
sense of what's happening for you.  Your local mirror should look like:


and setup should be pointed at "mirror".

I've just went through a whole battery of testing setup in both local
mirror mode, both using my usual scripts and via a shortcut to add an
"-mX" option to the invocation.  Leaving out the "-X" has setup complain
about the missing signature as intended.  Everything else works
correctly for me.

For download-only mode, setup doesn't write the signature file to disk,
so that will have to be corrected.

Oh and another thing: I always compile my own setup.exe, so if you can
do that  to see if it makes a difference for you?
