When installing via Cygwin Setup, the setup.exe crashes seemingly randomly,
heres the first 3 occasions and the files it crashed on
1st was -- /usr/local/include/gif_lib.h
2nd was -- /opt/gnome/doc/control-center-single-0.3/README
3rd was -- /opt/gnome/doc/control-center-single-0.3/README
the folowing 4 times i tried it, the files were different again.
i have tried a direct install form the internet, i have tried a download to local, then install from local, I have tried a FULL install, and a minimal install (selecting packages myself obviously) and theres always somthing that crashes it..
I have the latest cygwin setup.exe
I have the same problem any workaround this ?
Don't install the following packages:
libaccplet(something like that)
[Nothing in gnome-contrib]
gtk theme switcher
If it still crashes, see what package it crashed on and don't choose it next time. It was difficult for me, I went in a choose packages-install-crash loop for at least 50 times. Hope this helps.
