Re: Cygwin Setup - Choose Best Mirror Automatically for Automated / Silent Installs

I tried running GDB, but the setup executable doesn't have any
debugging symbols.  Is there a download link somewhere for the latest
compiled cygwin setup that includes these symbols?

Sorry, this isn't available...

GNU gdb (GDB)

Reading symbols from setup-x86_64.exe...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

... and even if it was, this wouldn't work because the distributed setup executable is packed with UPX, and gdb doesn't understand what that does to the process memory map.

I won't be able to debug it further unless I have that... I guess.

I'm afraid you will probably have to build setup from source to debug further (See [1])
