Cygwin and 1.0.7
Wed May 1 21:12:01 2002
I tried to compile gpg 1.0.7 on Cygwin today. It succeeded, and I finally
got a working executable, but there were some problems:
- I had to copy libutil.a, libcipher.a and libzlib.a to /lib by hand,
otherwise I got linker errors. I assume this is either a fault in
my Cygwin installation, or the generated makefile doesn't set the
linker path correctly.
- The resulting executable works on the commandline, but not with
WinPT 0.5.11 (it shows there are 0 keys on my keyring). The exe from
www.nullify.org does work OK with WinPT, are there differences on how
functions are called between exes created by Mingw32 and Cygwin?
- The command gpg -kvv gives a segfault on my exe but works OK with the
exe from www.nullify.org.
- I could not get keys from a keyserver with both executables, but I assume
the company firewall is to blame here.
Can anyone more experienced with these environments shed a light on this
