Hello, cygwin! How are you?
I have old (about 3-4 months old) installation of some cygwin
packages (gcc, XFree86, some other).
I've downloaded last cygwin (full tree: about 1Gb) on my work
computer and bring it at computer with old cygwin. I run
`setup.exe' (126.96.36.199, 171008 bytes) and select `Install from
local directory', and point to old target directory (with previous
installation). After that setup.exe shows only old (installed)
packages in `misc' category and doesn't shows other packages or new
If I point to new target directory setup.exe shows full list of
packages from `setup.ini'.
But I want to upgrade old install! Is it possible?
