OK, the mailer wouldn't accept it with the attachment, too big. If
you'd like the file, tell me where to send it and I will.

Yesterday, I tried using both "setup-2.358.exe" and "setup-2.358-
debug-00.exe.gz", accepting the default packages. I also tried
a couple different mirror sites, clearing everything out and starting
over atfer each attempt. With these, I never see the "Create Icons"
screen. The last thing the install screen shows, with 97% in the top
with the status bars below. I never moves after this, and a couple
times I waited 30 minutes or more before I cancelled it. When I hit
the "cancel" button at that point, it tells me "Installation
Complete", but when I try to run Bash I get the same error as
I did get a setup.log.full file. It all looks normal, no errors.
Here are the last few lines:
2003/06/12 18:02:29 textutils
2003/06/12 18:02:29 which
2003/06/12 18:02:29 zlib
2003/06/12 18:02:29 _update-info-dir
2003/06/12 18:02:29 running:
D:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe -c /etc/postinstall/base-
2003/06/12 18:31:31 mbox note: Installation
2003/06/12 18:31:33 Ending cygwin install
I assume the "Installation complete" line is where I hit "Cancel".
I'll attach a copy of the file if you want to look at the rest.
It also creates a "setup.log.postinstallXa67883" that is 0 bytes.
HTH, any insights you could give are welcome.
