Gary originally put this page together to help me
install a current 'snapshot' after flailing around for
several days following other suggestions.
As a seasoned Cygwin user since B16 I was amazed
at the difficulty I experienced trying to do this.
I found that following Gary's simple instructions I
painlessly able to get a current 'snapshot' Cygwin
up and running.
This included installing Mumit's gcc-2.95.2 release
and C. Wilson's Perl and usr / local release.
I have since successfuly compiled several large
( Python, FlightGear ) with this setup.
I would suggest however that one make mounts
for all drives in root as Ernie Boyd suggests.
I believe that a simple script could be written that
would create this system 'automagically' making
Cygwin much more accessible for newbies.
Thanks Gary :)
