It occurred to me, while trying to work out why ssh isn't working on a
laptop that we installed Cygwin on recently, to wonder whether the
information at http://cygwin.com/faq/faq_2.html#SEC19 (How do I uninstall
all of Cygwin?) could be a little more helpful.
It gives good advice, but ends by saying:
It's up to you to deal with other changes you made to your
system, such as installing the inetd service, altering system
paths, etc. Setup would not have done any of these things
This is true. But for ssh, and other packages, is there any useful
advice that could be given on how to uninstall?
I'm wondering how I get the machine back into a pristine state to try a
re-install, since perhaps some of our post-install changes screwed
things up. (ssh normally works just fine.)
