I downloaded and installed Cygwin X library, and did include the usrX11R6bin in the path (using Win XP environment variables). Nothing works still (including the rxvt), but when I try the same plot procedure I get a new error message now. It says this file could not be found: cyggmp-3.dll

Any idea when this .dll business will end? Where am I supposed to get this dll? I did a search and I don't have it on my HD, so it's not just a "Path" kind of problem.

Hi...I installed Singular 2.0.5 on my PC running Win XP. Then I tried this example from the book:

> ring A = 0, (x,y,z), dp;
> ideal I = y2-zx2;
> LIB "surf.lib";
// ** loaded /usr/local/Singular/2-0-5/LIB/surf.lib (,2002/07/17)
> plot (I, "rot_x=1.45;rot_y=1.36;rotz_=4.5;");

I got an error message saying the application could not run because the cygX11-6.dll is missing!!!! I reinstalled Singular using the "Repair" function from the installer but the problem persists.
Also, on a side note, the rxvt version doesn't start when I run it from "Tools", and when I typed TSingular.exe in the run command I got this message:
Error: Execution of /usr/bin/rxvt.exe +vb - sl2000 -fb Courier-bold-12-tn xterm -cr Red3 -e /usr/local/Singular/2-0-5/ix86-Win/Singular.exe

And within the terminal window it says "failed to load libX11.dll"

Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks.
