Hi, I'm trying to run octave from Cygwin and I'm experiencing problems with apparently missing files. I reported the problem on the octave mailing list, where people suggested it might be a packaging problem ( and suggested to bother you guys.

$ octave --version
GNU Octave, version 3.2.4
Copyright (C) 2009 John W. Eaton and others.

I tried the following commands:

octave:1> x=rand(1,10);
octave:2> y=rand(size(x));
octave:3> T=delaunay(x,y);
error: No such file or directory
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/geometry/delaunayn.m at line 55, column 5
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/geometry/delaunay.m at line 55, column 11

I have checked, both files (delaunayn.m and delaunay.m) exist. 

I'm running this version of Cygwin:

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 WEST091 1.7.7(0.230/5/3) 2010-08-31 09:58 i686 Cygwin

the output of "cygcheck -s -v -r " is attached.

Many thanks for your help.
