Re: Make program find its dll:s
Quoting Eric Lilja <email@example.com>:
Hi TomÃs and thanks for the quick reply. I tried setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH using $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/dll-files (and then
$ echo LD_LIBRARY_PATH that it "stuck"), but the process still cannot
find the DLL files. I am starting the process with strace so I am sure
this is the problem, not something else. I guess I could temporarily
modify the PATH but I'm interested in alternatives.
Although this is nothing specific to Cygwin: If you want to make the
variable value available to processes which are executed subsequently,
you need to export the variable, not just set it, as in:
Alternatively, set the variable in the command line like this:
assuming that "foo" is the command to start the app which requires the dll.
