Hello there,

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 (http:
I've sent this email at 
cygwin-apps at first, but I'm afraid it's the wrong list, please excuse 
me and ignore it.

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

$ cygcheck -l liblapack0

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

As so the the dll:

Really, I can't figure out what's 
on earth is going on, what I'm doing wrong? (well, actually I really 
did do nothing at all... ) Am I missing some package, setting or else? 
As already said, I just did the automatic installation from a directory 
after having downloaded the files via the setup.exe dialog GUI.

thanks in advance,
