The cramfs-1.1-1 package is now available via cygwin setup.exe.

The cramfs package contains utilities that can be used to create
and verify Linux cramfs filesystem images.  These tools cam be
used to create cramfs filesystem images for embedded Linux systems.

This port of cramfs is based on the vanilla cramfs-1.1 sources, but
includes patches for device table support and generating cramfs image
files with an endianess that differs from the host.

Please note that while mkcramfs supports '-r' (allowing you to create
a reversed-endian cramfs image), cramfsck does *not* (yet) support
images that do not have the same endianness as the host.  PTC.

                       *** INSTALLATION ***

"Select Packages" page, open the "Devel" category and select the
