Description Jochen Schmitt 2007-09-05 11:58:38 EDT
On BZ 275641 an user compaints, thst steghide fails with the following
error message:

steghide: could not open libmcrypt module "rijndael-128", "cbc"

My examination shows, that this error message will produced from the
mcrypt_module_open call in the MCryptPP.cc file of steghide.

The call looks like:

	if ((MCryptD = mcrypt_module_open (algo, MCRYPTPP_LIBDIR, mode,
		throw SteghideError (_("could not open libmcrypt module \"%s\",\"%s\"."),
algo, mode) ;

It will be nice, if you can get a look on it.

At last, the reported issue was caused my libmcrypt, which I have selected as
the correct component for this bug report.

Just not enabling the static lib resolves this bug? Thats a little odd, are you
