I think its readline that still depends on cygncurses5.dll. Since psql uses
readline, psql depends on cygncurses5.dll. I suspect is you look back over
the previous stuff on full in cygwin setup you should be able to find it.
This has come up before so you'll probably find out more by searching the
list.

Subject: [CYGWIN] psql ERROR 


Hello,
This is a two part message\report:
----------------------------------------
Running Win2K Server " Please no snickers" =) All up to date !
Was running Cygwin 1.3.5 Complete install "net of course"
---------------------------------------
The first one is about "tcsh shell", that was not a real biggy. Because I
normally use "bash". Then I tried to get "PostgresSQL 7.1.3" installed &
configured and it seamed a bit more serious. I have included everthing I can
think of in this email.

The first thing I did was get the lastest copy of CYGWIN ver 1.3.6, this was
to try & fix the error I got when I tried to go from "Bash Shell" to "Tcsh
Shell" Error counld not find "cygcurses5.dll"
Then following the instructions in "postgresql-7.1.3.README" I downloaded &
installed "cygipc-1.11-1.tar.bz2". Following the README for "IPC". I setup
all the user accounts and service for "ipc-daemon" & "PostgresSQL". Started
& tested "ipc", all went good. Then went through setting up "initdb &
Postmaster", all went good. Then when I fired off the command "psql
templete1" is when I got the same Error as I did when I tried to use "tcsh".

My real question is:
 Am I to make this "cugcurses5.dll" locally on my computer, or should it be
part of the binary Dist. of "Cygwin"?
OR; Is this A BUG?

Both "ipc-daemon & postmaster" are runnig fine as services. throwing NO
ERROR or taxing the system.

I would be very thankful for any pointers or help on this!

Best Regards, Ray Martin  rtm1(at)indianvalley(dot)com

This is the ERROR
" The Dynamic link library cygncurses5.dll could not be found
