Just choose 'install' for it in Cygwin's installer.

Yes. Use the packages they provide or build from source.

Better yet, don't use Cygwin.

Nothing wrong with Cygwin. Unless you want decent performance, or non-weird behaviour, or being able to run non-cygwin console programs with doskey command completion, or...

Hmm.

Oh.

That aside, I keep it around on my work box for the zero-effort installation of random crap^H^Heature comforts. Like bash for a shell with non-stupid tab completion, and locate, which I couldn't live without and couldn't get to work on Windows in any non-Cygwin variant.

I just updated CygWin this afternoon and it is now carrying Ruby 1.8.5.
So there's little need to build from source unless you're into doing
that. :slight_smile:
