[GRASS-user] Upgrade 6.1.cvs - 6.2.1 (cygwin) Vectors dont'work

By further investigation: An old verson of cyggdal-1.dll had been left
sitting in /bin... As that came before /usr/local/whatever where the
right version was put that was the one that was picked up. Now 6.2.1
works fine.

thanks to Hamish for help!

Thanks, that did it, well at least I found what the problem is, the
installations of 6.1.cvs and 6.2.1 have somehow been mixed up, and I am
told that libgrass_gis.6.1.cvs.dll and libgrass_I.6.1.cvs.dll can not be
found... They are both where they've always been
(/usr/local/grass6.1.cvs), but for some reason grass 6.2.1 looks for
them rather than for the corresponding 6.2.1 files it should be using
(those files are also present (in /usr/local/grass.6.2.1)). A bit
strange, since d.vect is also using a lot of 6.2.1 dlls which it finds
without any problems and d.rast is using libgrass_gis.6.2.1.dll.

I could of cource purge my old grass 6.1.cvs installation, but I am a
bit reluctant to get rid of something that works for what I am doing...
