Cygwin: need to copy/clone configuration
Posted on 2014-04-17
Here is the scenario, our engineering team was working on Cygwin on Windows XP, due to some reason, XP got corrupted, now we have setup a new machine with a brand new XP too, with exactly same configuration and setup and when we installed Cygwin on it, it's not the same as that old one.
Now the question is how to get that old configuration information and place it on this new one and those folks don't even know what they had done there, because some other guy did it and he is no more in the company.
And they are insisting to have the same/old XP Cygwin setup on this new XP machine.
I've the old/complete Cygwin folder with me, but don't know, what & where to look for there configuration setup/changes.
Please assist/guide/help ... thanks in advance.
