First thanks to Brian for the links, that worked fine.
Keith, when I said the website seems broken, then I didn't mean it only lacks a bit of information, but that it shows an error:
"[an error occurred while processing this directive]"
And I really dont see how I could access those MSYS files on SF. When I select (as I did all the years) "Download"-"Browse all files" then I will not see any MSYS files or packages! They only appear after clicking on "View older releases in the Snapshot package Â»" in the Snapshot package. This is not very intuitive I must say. :-/
But it worked fine now, I installed 1.10 and copied the snapshot files over it.
Thanks for your help, pat
