Re: Problem with Cygwin and GNU Octave operating simultaneously

Yesterday, I installed Cygwin in order to run some bash scripts and crontab tasks. Following this, Octave would not operate, so I re-installed Octave. Now, when working in Cygwin, I am having troubles. First of all the root has changed to the Gnuplot root. The two also seem to be interfering with each other. This error output has appeared: You have multiple copies of cygwin1.dll on your system.

This is a problem with the Octave installer.  You should report the problem
to them.  They should not install their cygwin1.dll if there's a newer one
already installed.

For now, just remove the one installed by Octave.  If you're still having
problems, report the specifics here (see <>)
and someone here will try to determine whether this is a Cygwin issue or 
something you need to take up with the Octave folks.
