- Subject: email package dependency (openssl) not automatically installed
I installed a fresh Cygwin 1.7 beta, and added the 'email' package.
Then, I ran the following to send myself a test message:
$ echo "Test message" | email --subject="Test" \
> --smtp-server="smtp.at.my.isp" --from-name="Steven Monai" \
> --from-addr="firstname.lastname@example.org" email@example.com
/usr/bin/email.exe: error while loading shared libraries:
cygssl-0.9.8.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Whoops. Is there something wrong with 'openssl'?
$ cygcheck -c email openssl
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
email 3.1.2-2 OK
No 'openssl'. So 'email' was installed, but at least one of its
dependencies wasn't. Could this be an 'email' packaging bug?
Anyway, after installing 'openssl', 'email' works just fine.
