- Subject: clean uninstall
- Authentication-results: sourceware.org; auth=none
I have deleted all but var and dev from my C:\cygwin folder (which was
quite painful and time-consuming BTW) and then moved the cygwin folder
to my Documents folder and then deleted a Cygwin desktop icon and two
Cygwin folders from my Start > All Programs menu. Is that sufficient to
give me a clean uninstall so that I can do a brand new Cygwin install
without problems? I did it that way because I couldn't figure out any
other way of uninstalling Cygwin.
The reason that I want to do a clean re-install is because as per advice
from the list I now want to do a selective install rather than
installing whole Categories as I have before.
Thanks very much in advance for any help. I would appreciate replies
from multiple people to make sure that the advice I'm getting is
generally agreed upon.
