Additionally, Windows does not easily allow overwriting of in-use executables so installing a new version of the Cygwin DLL while a package manager is using the DLL is problematic. (Two instances of the same binary can run side-by-side in this case; one as a server, and the other running briefly as a client and then terminating.) There are lots of reasons you might want to run your own server, but most of them can be summarized as: you can trust your own server, you have control over its workload, and you're not at the mercy of others to decide when and how you can access it.From that same page: The basic reason for not having a more full-featured package manager is that such a program would need full access to all of Cygwin's POSIX functionality.That is, however, difficult to provide in a Cygwin-free environment, such as exists on first installation.Most of the time, we describe the XRP Ledger as one collective, singular entity -- and that's mostly true.There is one production XRP Ledger peer-to-peer network, and all business that takes place on the XRP Ledger occurs within the production network.$ sudo rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs https://mirrors.ripple.com/ripple-repo-el7$ yumdownloader --enablerepo=ripple-stable --releasever=el7 rippled $ rpm -K rippled*$ sudo alien -i --scripts rippled*$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload $ sudo service rippled restart for config changes to take effect.Take care not to publish the IP address of your validator.
So it's nice, but useless since I have to use Cygwin's setup too. For a more convenient installer, you may want to use the apt-cyg package manager. For this, follow the above steps and then use Cygwin Bash for the following steps: after doing above step apt-cyg for 64 bits gives exception /usr/local/bin/apt-cyg: line 1: $'\r': command not found /usr/local/bin/apt-cyg: line 3: $'\r': command not found /usr/local/bin/apt-cyg: line 19: $'\r': command not found /usr/local/bin/apt-cyg: line 21: $'\r': command not found /usr/local/bin/apt-cyg: line 27: syntax error near unexpected token Update: you can read the more complex answer, which contains more methods and information.
So you have to close all Cygwin instances first and then you can use Cygwin’s native (which itself does the upgrade via “replace after reboot” method, when files are in use). There exists a lot of forks with some additional features.
For example the kou1okada fork is one of improved versions. The only officially supported tool for downloading and updating Cygwin packages is the file you used for the initial install, although that can be invoked with command line arguments to help the process.
won't upgrade to a new OS, but will upgrade to a new kernel (common enough) or a different set of dependencies (common enough) or remove dependencies that don't matter after an upgrade (also common).
If you're on a home or office system, most of the time you want @user22180 that's a very intelligent question.
