Dear cygwin-apps,

I was notified about a postinstall error in the lyx 1.6.6 package that
I prepared about two years ago. I have retired from the lyx
development team but since no one picked up my role as the cygwin
maintainer, I have prepared a cygwin package for lyx, which
can be downloaded from
Please let me know if it works as expected because the whole process
seems to be a bit different from two years ago.
