Hi guys

This is a long shot but does anyone have an archive of that DLL, required
by sol.exe in aisleriot-1.4.0.4-2.tar.bz2 of Feb 2003, still up on
SourceForge?
As it is nowhere in any recent Cygwin collection, perhaps it should have
been included in the tarball?
I have tried emailing the Cygwin Aisleriot authors, Jonathan Blandford,
Felix Bellaby and Rosanna Yuen but all three emails (of 2001) bounce now,
of course.
Does anyone know where they are now?

TIA
Mike

I don't think it exists. The only thing Google provides is a reference
to this thread[1].

I don't have any dll for you, but I did scare up some source code, maybe.

https://stuff.mit.edu/afs/athena/astaff/project/aui/OldFiles/src/third/gnome-games/po/gnome-games.pot

leads me to believe that the source code is part of freecell, i.e.
https://stuff.mit.edu/afs/athena/astaff/project/aui/OldFiles/src/third/gnome-games/freecell/gdk-card-image/
But at least some builds make that a static library, so I'm not sure it
always exists as a dll.
https://web.archive.org/web/20030404002521/http://homepage.ntlworld.com:80/steven.obrien2/libs/patches/gnome-games-1.4.0.4-cygwin.patch
may also be of interest, that's what
https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygnome/files/Games_Amusement/aisleriot/
refers to.

Gee, they used Scheme :-)

Good luck!

considering that it is from the time of Cygwin 1.3 and Gnome 1, I
suspect that if also you find it, it will depend on other obsolete libraries

There is no obsolete, there is only legacy, in the Cygwin Time Machine:
http://ctm.crouchingtigerhiddenfruitbat.org/pub/cygwin/circa/index.html
If you know what Cygwin version you have, you can pick more quickly.

The package is available in many other distributions and sources are available:
