Installing PyGTK 2.24.2 from source with Windows 7, Python 2.7--cannot find MSYS core 1.0.11

David T Pitchford
I am trying to install PyGTK from source to apply the workaround for this bug that was preventing me from using the ComboBoxText widget: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=660659

Of the dependencies, I have installed the gtk+ bundle, pycairo, pygobject, and MinGW, but I am hung up on MSYS. Following the instructions for MSYS 1.0.11 on http://mingw.org/wiki/msys, I have installed the main MSYS-1.0.11 package and edited C:\msys\1.0\etc\fstab to map my MinGW installation properly. I then successfully installed MSYS DTK 1.0.

However, the link to MSYS core 1.0.11 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MSYS/BaseSystem/msys-1.0.11/msysCORE-1.0.11-bin.tar.gz/download) is broken and I couldn't find the correct one with some internet searching, either. Is there a more up-to-date version of the MSYS that has the correct link, or could someone point me to it?
