First, be sure to follow the directions as listed on cygwinports.org (and notice that they changed just last week). In step 4, after selecting a Cygwin mirror, enter one of the sourceware mirrors **including /cygwinports in the path** into the User URL field. The mirror you select MUST be from a different domain name than your Cygwin mirror. (Hopefully this last restriction will go away soon.) Unfortunately, it seems many of the sourceware mirrors on the list are obsolete or non-responsive. I just went through them all, and tried finding a few more, and as of this moment the following appear to be working well: North America: http://mirrors.kernel.org/sources.redhat.com/cygwinports/ ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/sources.redhat.com/cygwinports/ http://sourceware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/sourceware.org/cygwinports/ ftp://mirror.cs.vt.edu/pub/cygwin/cygwinports/ Europe: http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/sourceware/cygwinports/ ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/sourceware/cygwinports/ http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/sources.redhat.com/cygwinports/ ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/sources.redhat.com/cygwinports/ http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/sourceware.org/cygwinports/ ftp://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/sourceware.org/cygwinports/ http://bo.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/sourceware.org/cygwinports/ ftp://bo.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/sourceware.org/cygwinports/ http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/sourceware.org/pub/cygwinports/ ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/sourceware.org/pub/cygwinports/ Asia: http://ftp.cs.pu.edu.tw/Linux/sourceware/cygwinports/ ftp://ftp.cs.pu.edu.tw/Linux/sourceware/cygwinports/ Australia: http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/sourceware/cygwinports/ ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/sourceware/cygwinports/ HTH, Yaakov Cygwin Ports ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Get your SQL database under version control now!
