Re: octave-3.4.0.exe: error while loading shared libraries

Hello there,

wrong mailing list.
Please use cygwin(at) for this type of issue,
for follow ups

I'm sorry to disturb but as an absolute beginner with
Cygwin I couldn't find the correct answer to this problem, even if I
found some interesting clues from previous answer in mailing list

This is my very
first installation (default + math package; Windows 7 machine), I did
not performed any change or customization but I tried to re-install the
whole a couple of times to recover, unsuccessfully.

As the former
reporter said in aforementioned question, I get this error:

gennarif@NIDORAN ~
$ octave
/usr/bin/octave-3.6.4.exe: error while
loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory

Then I performed the suggested check but got
different output

gennarif@NIDORAN ~
$ cygcheck octave-3.4.0.exe

cygcheck: could not find 'octave-3.4.0.exe'

gennarif@NIDORAN ~
cygcheck -l liblapack0

That's really strange because Octave package DO exist in this
path (which has not the /usr/ parent folder):

/usr/bin is mounted on  /bin
(same content)

As so the the dll:


I will bet "/usr/lib/lapack" is missing from your PATH

see "/etc/profile.d/" content

thanks in advance,


If you have still issue, could you as reported on

"Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an attachment in your report. Please do not compress or otherwise encode the output. Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be easily viewed. "
