    Fantastic job on the whole - and the bonus of being able to use the setup now to upgrade libraries is fabulous. Thanks - keep up the great work.

      control-center, gnome-core, gnome-utils MUST be installed in order to run GNOME applications, while they are not available from the Setup approach at present.  We'll add them as soon as possible.

      And in order to run GNOME desktop, gnome-applets, mc/gmc, sawfish(and librep, rep-gtk) are required.

      Sorry for the inconvenience!

        As we're busy upgrading our package baseline to cygwin-1.3.20, gcc-3.2, binutils-20021107 and so on,  the core desktop packages are left behind.

        Check it next monday. It everything goes OK, there should be a new surpise !

      Sorry for the slow work.
      We need another a couple of days to test the new versions.
