ALL, Sorry for the premature send.
Thank you for all the work you do on Cygwin and especially the
I saw this warning:
Q: How do I install everything?
A: You do not want to do this! This will install an enormous
number of packages that you will never use, including debuginfo and
source for every package.
I downloaded the x64 setup.exe and requested a complete install over
the weekend. As stated in the warning above, the download and the
(attempted) install consumed all of a 128Gb disk which also had
Windows 10 on it.
Is there a way to request a complete install of everything EXCEPT
debuginfo and source? If not, it is going to be difficult to obtain a
full Cygwin install along with a successful installation.
