Yes this is outdated info
Our webmaster isn't really into the Cygwin side of things :-)
However if you are comfortable with Cygwin, or really a command
line oriented development system, You should be able to build the
'current developers' version quite painlessly.

OK, Here is how you do it.
1) Install the latest Cygwin Toolkit
click on insall cygwin now icon at
< do all of the following from a bash shell >
2) Create a src directory at /usr/local/src
3) use CVS to install the files
# run this script from your toplevel src dir
echo "hit <return> when asked for PLib password"
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/plib login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/plib co plib
echo "enter 'guest <return>' when asked for SimGear password"
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/wsp/pubcvs/SimGear login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:email@example.com:/wsp/pubcvs/SimGear co SimGear
echo "enter 'guest<return>' when asked for FlightGear password"
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/wsp/pubcvs/FlightGear login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:email@example.com:/wsp/pubcvs/FlightGear co
4) Make the packages
cd into each of the respective directories plib simgear flightgear
in that order and run this script
Now all you need is the FlightGear base package
which you should also get from CVS
decide where you want to install FlightGear, cd there and
checkout the FlightGear base package with this script
echo "CVS passwd: cvsguest"
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvsroot login
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/home/cvsroot co fgfsbase
You are now ready to takeoff :-)
Updating this configuration is a LOT easier then setting it up !
Hope you have a relatively fast machine
minimal system 200 mhz 64 meg OpenGL card
reccomend 500 mhz 128 meg or more Geforce GFX
Holler again if you need more advice
