>Gnu Octave 2.1.36 is a package downloaded from sourceforge.net that incorporates Octave, Gnuplot, and Cygwin, to the best of my knowledge. I originally had it installed alone. 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.
>Has anyone had a similar problem? Can I continue working with both programs installed? How can I assure they won't interfere, and can I have a separate root for each program?
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
For now, just remove the one installed by Octave. If you're still having
problems, report the specifics here (see <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>)
and someone here will try to determine whether this is a Cygwin issue or
something you need to take up with the Octave folks.
