I would be gratefull if you could help with the following problem:
I am trying to make a CD so that cywin binary/source can be installed
from this CD. The reason being I only have a linux computer my friend
only has a Windows XP. I have a fast internet connection , he has none.
we finally did get his computer hooked up to my network and installed.
However I would like to know how to do this still
So I mirrored a cygwin ftp archive and burned them onto a CD. However when
I try to install from the CD I get the following two errors many, many
times when the post-install scripts are running.
1) sed.exe : "The procedure entry point libintl_gettext could not be located in
the dynamic link library cygintl-2.dll" .
2) basename.exe : "The procedure entry point libintl_bindtextdomain
could not be located in the dynamic link library cygintl-2.dll"
Apparently as a result of these errors almost nothing works not even -
ls, man , info ... etc.
Since we have been trying to install almost the entire distro it is not
possible that some thing is missing. If i am correct this particular
library is provided by the gettext package which is being installed too.
I also noticed oddly that setup.exe classifies packages into categories
when I ran it on his computer , and did a network install but it lists
all packages in one category "misc" when we tried to install from the CD
i made. ????
If this question has been often repeated here , I would be gratefull if
you could just point me to the appropriate page. I have seen the
script mkcygwget but would like to know how to obtain the corresponding
source to make a source CD too.
