Re: Obtaining a pervious version

They have a cross compiler that uses the cygwin compatability layer.
They have modified and distribute a version of this layer, which is
built upon cygwin1.dll version 1.3.13. However, they distribute with
their tools only a minimal subset of cygwin necessary for their tools to
run. However, in the project I am doing I need not only the 3rd party
cross compiler, but also native gcc and binutils etc.

Secondly, can you please tell me how to obtain, via the setup installer,
a prior version of the Cygwin base installation? I'm using some 3rd
party software tools that were built upon Cygwin 1.3.13, and am having
versioning issues when trying to run them under 1.3.20.
Um. "3rd party software tools"? If you are using software distributed
by someone else then *they* should be providing you with both the binary
and sources that the software needs.
However, simply running the 3rd party tools under the current cygwin
release does not work (versioning errors), and similarly trying to run
cygwin binutils under this 3rd party "cut down" cygwin doesn't work
either (same problem).
Yeah that's what I would have thought, but it doesn't work. I've tried
just about every combination I can think of, and it all falls in a heap.
In any event, 1.3.20 is compatible with 1.3.13 so, you should be all
