I tried updating from HEAD and compiled on W2k and Win95. I then ran and
reinstalled gcc-mingw and inetutils. I still got a command window which I
believe was before the install (and was actually doing the uninstall - but I
think it said postinstall) and then it did the install and then no other
windows (just "create icons" in the task bar and as a title on the current
window then installation complete.
I then tried the above patch for the progress bars and the different thread and
reinstalled same two packages - I saw the .sh files change to .sh.done but saw
no difference in the screens from the first time I ran. No progress bars or
difference in windows. On either machine. :-(
Just thought I would give you an update but I need to play with this one more
and look at some code and see if I can tell if it is working and where it
should be working.
