Hi.

Never run into this before.  Running Win7 and installing cygwin via
setup-x86_64 v2.879.

I kept running into categories I couldn't install due to a missing
libUSB-W32 driver.  Some of the categories are

Devel
Math
Net
Publishing
Python

I get an error about libusb0, says I need to install this driver. Does
anybody know;

What this is?
What it does?
What uses it?
Why it isn't part of the cygwin packages apparently?

Because it need an external software driver.

Are you trying to install all of devel category and more ?
Very bad choice, there are more than 7000 packages and I doubt
anyone need more than 2000

Limit your installation to what you really need.
You can always add missing packages later.

Marco
