Today I downloaded the latest version of the cygwin setup program and ran
it on Windows 2000 Pro SP2. I chose to install the default packages from
the internet. This looked like everything was going fine until the very end
when the following popup error message appeared...
"sh.exe - Unable To Locate DLL : The dynamic link library cygwin1.dll could
not be found in the specified path..."
I could not find cygwin1.dll anywhere on my machine - it appears it had not
been downloaded or at least not unpacked.
I looked at setup.log and noticed there were a lot of the following error
messages: "compress_bz::error called".
I ran the whole thing again, but this time chose to install the bzip2
shared libraries (which are NOT included by default).
This time everything worked like a dream. So to me it looks like the bzip2
shared libraries are not optional. Does this make sense?
