ffmpeg: cygass-4.dll missing

When I installed ffmpeg, I didn't get any error.

When I try to run it I get the following error: 
C:/cygwin64/bin/ffmpeg.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

When I run: 
cygcheck `which ffmpeg` 
I get:
cygcheck: track_down: could not find cygass-4.dll

And nothing matching cygass or libass or even just ass seems to be in the repo.

trying to compile mono for cygwin

I'm asking the cygwinports list first, because my hunting seems to hint  
that at one point, mono was available under cygwinports, but I haven't  
found any details.  I'm hoping someone can either give me a useful  
hint, or perhaps point me at a useful resource.

I have a mono program (f-spot) which I'd like to get running under  
Windows.  There are some dependencies which do not have native windows  
ports (dbus, for example) so I'd like to see if I can possibly get it  
working under cygwin.  However, I'm getting stuck pretty early in the  
process.  I've found various web pages purporting to give instructions  
for compiling mono under cygwin, but they give conflicting information,  
and so far, none I've tried has worked.  I suspect part of the problem  
is they are all from different times, and so different version  
combinations of mono and cygwin.  The underlying issue always seems to  
be some conflict between windows and posix paths.

The first issue is what prefix to give to mono.  Some sites suggest a  
short windows path (H:\MonoInstall) for example, and one site had you  
later bind mount this to /usr/local.  However, some part of the compile  
always trips over the windows path, often trying to put a windows drive  
(H:) in front of a posix path (/usr/local/...) giving  
(H:/usr/local/...) which won't work for anyone.  Using  
prefix=/usr/local lets me compile and install, but later, compiling  
gtk-sharp, some of the utilities seem to expect Windows paths as  
arguments.  Note that if I just do ./configure for mono, it only  
outputs a few lines, and then says to do ./compile  
--host=x86-pc-mingw32.  As I understand it, this will produce mono  
native windows executables, which is not what I want.  I really do want  
everything to run under cygwin.  However, explicitly using any other  
host just tells me to use  mingw32.

I've avoided giving specific error messages, because every one I've  
tried to deal with just seems to lead me down a rabbit hole of twisty  
little passages.  I've also tried so many variations, I'm no longer  
sure which try produced which error.

Thanks for any suggestions or hints.

Jack

cygwin/X error

I installed cygwin and cygwin/X 64-bit on a Windows 10 laptop. I have an application that uses Motif and Xt libraries. It runs on Linux and Windows Vista with cygwin cygwin/X 32-bit. On Windows 10 I get segmentation fault. Here is a screen dump from gdb/where when it core dumps

Please help. I understand that everything is not yet ported to 64-bit. Please let me know what the timetable is. Will the updates be available through the cygwin-setup program or some other mechanism. 
Thank you.

Fundraising time again

Hi all,

My apologies for being quiet here recently.  A lot of my focus as of
late has been moving packages from Ports into the distro so that users
can more easily find, and install, these packages.  This was always the
eventual goal of Ports, and therefore while I have been busy building
packages as always, for the most part they haven't been specifically
landing here.

In mid-2009 (6.5 years ago!), with your help, I built a new system
which has served as both my personal computer and my Cygwin builder,
and which has been upgraded along the way thanks to your continued
support.  In that time, it has been put to very good use.  Not only
have we seen major new versions of Cygwin and other software in that
time, but also added x86_64 native support with all its advantages.

Unfortunately, I'm sorry to report that system died recently, and after
taking it apart it is clear that either the CPU and/or motherboard are
at fault.  Given how long it has been (this was a quad-core socket AM2+
with DDR2), most stores aren't selling compatible hardware anymore, so
the time has come to start over.

With the increased number and size of packages being built for Cygwin,
along with the addition of a second architecture (meaning that most
packages end up being built twice) and split debuginfo (which, while
extremely useful, consumes much more disk and memory space), it has
become increasingly difficult to both *use* and build with a single
system.  I now have the funds for a decent personal system, which I
hope to put together soon, but am looking for a separate builder, and
the more cores the better.  With exchanges rates such as they are
(approaching 70 cents on the dollar), it's going to take a sum of money
to make this happen.

Donations may be made through PayPal; go to http://cygwinports.org/ and
click on the "Make A Donation" button.

Thank you again for your support.

Wrong Setup.ini Content

Hi,

I tried to download some cygwin ports packages using the instructions at the home page:

http://cygwinports.org/

I tried to download the package named mingw64-i686-sqlite3, so I clicked that package and it said the version was at 3.8.8-1.

Then I clicked 'next' and it started downloading. However afterwards it reported 'Download Incomplete. Try again?"

I inspected the ini file(s) from the server:

ftp://ftp.cygwinports.org/pub/cygwinports/x86/setup.bz2
ftp://ftp.cygwinports.org/pub/cygwinports/x86/setup.ini

And both said the current version of that package was 3.8.8-1, which was wrong because the corresponding package didn't exist on the server:

ftp://ftp.cygwinports.org/pub/cygwinports/noarch/release/mingw64-i686-sqlite3/mingw64-i686-sqlite3-3.8.8-1.tar.xz

 It should have been 3.8.11.1-1:

ftp://ftp.cygwinports.org/pub/cygwinports/noarch/release/mingw64-i686-sqlite3/mingw64-i686-sqlite3-3.8.11.1-1.tar.xz

Can someone check the content of the setup.ini files? this package isn't the only one that is wrong.

Thanks.

David.

Status of python-matplotlib package?

Hi,

Firstly thanks for making all these packages available, it's an
excellent resource for Cygwin users.

I'm just wondering what happened to the python-matplotlib package.
It's a very useful plotting package for Python so it's a shame to see
it disappear.  Is there any chance of getting back in cygwinports?

Regards,
Chris

Ncview

Hi, 

is it possible to include ncview (http://meteora.ucsd.edu/~pierce/ncview_home_page.html) in the software distribution?

For me the installation was only a ./configure && make && make install

thank you very much.

Error installing kdevelop, missing library

Hi,

I just tried installing KDevelop and I get this error when trying to
run the program. This is on Cygwin64, a brand new install:

/usr/bin/kdevelop.exe: error while loading shared libraries:
cygQtDeclarative-4.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory

Tried reinstalling, same problem. A missing dependency perhaps?

So I tried installing a few other KDE apps, dolphin, kde-baseapps etc.
and that seemed to pull the library down as well, Kdevelop then works.

classpath needs to be rebuilt on 32bit


Please rebuild classpath on 32bit so that the dependency on libgmp3
(which no longer exists in the Cygwin distribution) is no lnger there.

Regards,
Achim.
