Problem with installation of Octave

Arjen Markus
Hello,

when I updated my installation of Cygwin with Octave (4.2.2 to be
precise) and tried running it (while having an X server running), I
ran into a problem with D-bus:

D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine
uuid: Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory See
the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.

Apparently, installing Octave was not enough, I had to install D-bus
separately. When I had done that, the problem was gone. I guess this
is an omission in the dependencies for Octave. Note: this problem
occurred both with and without the GUI that Octave comes with (octave
--no-gui gave the same error messages).

Kind regards,

Arjen Markus

Hi Arjen,
noted, however I see that dbus shoud be pulled by xinit

Are you using the X server without xinit ?

Regards
Marco

Re: Problem with installation of Octave

I checked the various packages that I have installed regarding X:

libX11-devel, libX11-xcb1, libX11_6, libXau-devel, libXau6,
libXcomposite1, libXcursor1, libXdamage1, libXdmcp-devel, libXdmcp6,
libXext6, libXfixes3, libXfont2_2, libXft2, libXi6, libXinerama1,
libXmuu1, libXrandr2, libXrender1, libXss1, libXtst6,
libxcb-composite0, libxcb-devel, libxcv-ewmh2, libxcb-glx0,
libxcb-icccm4, libxcb0image0 (and some other X-related libraries, just
skipping them, as they seem not to add more information), xauth,
xcursor-themes, xkbcomp, xkeyboard-config, xorg-server,
xorg-server-common, xorgproto.

There is no command "xinit". I start the X server using the command
"X" and that seems to work fine. However, I do see a pacakge xinit now
that I explicitly look for it.

Regards,

Arjen
