Re: Build on msys2 fails : libngspice-x.dll not found in any executable path


I did  that and got a weird error from cmake to the effect it wanted to build MSVS make files (from long, long, long ago).

I deleted all CMakeCacke.txt on my system.

I decided to run pacman -Syuu and it did a small update.

I then ran the cmake script without scripting off

 -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles"

this completed with no errors. I am running

make -j install   presently.

perhaps they fixed the wxPython issue?

Unfortunately, while we seem to get past the libngspice-0.dll problem with the fix, the old workaround  for the python problem no longer works.

Throws the library mismatch error.

I do not see this issue.

FindwxPython is not called if cmake is called with -DKICAD_SCRIPTING=OFF
Try to delete CMakeCacke.txt and rerun cmake.
