RE: Problems downloading rockbox components with cygwin

Hi, My 2 cents to the topic. Might be of help to you.
When you try to download/install components from rockbox site. I hope you
had entered the rockbox url in the add website box. And in the next window
you need to select rockbox url, only then cygwin will go and
download/install those.
Secondly, you need to individually select the packages to be
downloaded/installed. List of which you can get from rockbox website. The
required packages are not selected by default. Needs to be done manually.
Hope that helps.
To your first point, yes, I'm specifying the URL and selecting that. I can
see the directory created in the install folder and the corresponding
setup.ini file as well.
To your second, thanks. I didn't realise that. When I last configured such
an environment a year ago, selecting 'all' would download all the packages
once connected to the Rockbox download site.
