I have a setup.ini and I have never edited this file. I mirror the cygwin
directory from mirrors.rcn.net and select install from local package and
browse to my local mirror. On current installations, the "Misc" categories
do not appear when I browse to my local mirror. However, on brand new
installations, all the "Misc" categories appear. I have mapped the drive
the exact same way yet I get different results depending on whether I run
setup against an existing install or a brand new install.
I just tried to reproduce this error and could not :( I installed bash and
openssh then ran setup a second time to see what happened. It wanted to
install extra packages but they were mostly from the "base" and none from
"misc". I know this has been a problem in the past but now I can't
Could it have something to do with how I execute the setup.exe and what I
use as the base install directory?
