Re: Finding the SONAME for bzip2

Thank you Charles,

Yes, the installation goes only have the way. I also found at least
two bugs affecting Cygwin, one similar to a zlib bug. In case of zlib
I tried to report 2 bugs upstream. It seems they have no bugtracker
and the mailing list is a closed society. At that point I gave up. To
justify, why you want to report a bug, is too much.

> Actually, bzip2 and zlib are very poor candidates. Most larger projects

It's always the poor candidate that brings us back to the roots. :-)

Well, I use dozends of packages, that simply work. But a car with
three wheels still can't drive. I need to acquire the skills to fix
the tiny rest.


Caution crosser: ?Runnig Gentoo/Prefix on Cygwin/Vista.
All stupid questions are related to that context.
