Re: Setup missing installed packages

Greetings, Lemke, Michael  ST/HZA-ZIC2!

>>> I was just about to update my Cygwin installation when setup would

>>> it with -v it tells there are 69 packages installed. But
>>> $ wc /etc/setup/installed.db
>>>    835  2504 36779 /etc/setup/installed.db
>>> and I also see all these tar files in the installation directory. This
>>> is a 32bit installation on Win10 64bit.
>>> What is going on, how can I debug this?
>>69 packages seems a minimal installation.
>>May be you have more than one Cygwin installed ?
>>Double check the proposed installation directory from setup
