Ok. I deleted c:/Cygwin. Pointed the download archive to a new clean
folder and ran the Lintronix/winxastir install. Selected binaries for
xastir_min in the setup tool. Ran install. Started an Cygwin Shell
Window. Ran Xwindows& After it opened, I ran xastir& It worked.
I didn't count the clicks but it certainly wasn't much more then 7.
Here's some comments from an on-going chat session for time stamping.
[12:39:51 PM] <vodall> I'm trying a clean internet install
[12:43:32 PM] <vodall> it's off and running. full download. Nice
having 6 MB cable to abuse
[12:44:09 PM] <vodall> I should have counted clicks
[12:51:29 PM] <vodall> I should have timed the install. 96% now
[12:51:44 PM] <vodall> it'll be interesting if it runs out of the box.
[12:56:40 PM] <vodall> post install stage
[12:58:39 PM] <vodall> xastir runs
Bottom line - 19 minutes to do an CygwinXastir install. Maybe one more
to type in the Internet interface and have stations appearing on a local

Ok - I've done it before and didn't need to read the instructions.
Point is - it works! No development environment or compiling required.
