Description James 2020-10-28 14:38:45 UTC
When installing rclone via 'pkg install rclone' running rclone with the web gui argument, rclone errors out and fails to downloaded the files needed for it because curl is not installed.

Once installing curl, it downloads the files normally.


without curl package installed:

root@rclone:~ # rclone rcd --rc-web-gui --rc-web-gui-no-open-browser --rc-user=admin --rc-pass=pass --rc-web-gui-update -vv

2020/10/28 14:06:57 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.52.2" starting with parameters ["rclone" "rcd" "--rc-web-gui" "--rc-web-gui-no-open-browser" "--rc-user=admin" "--rc-pass=pass" "--rc-web-gui-update" "-vv"]

With curl package installed:

pkg install curl-7.72.0

If you could add curl as a dependency for rclone that would be great and help others not get the same error :)

The missing dependency is actually ca_root_nss.

Add ca_root_nss dependency.
