I am trying to install zsh into a non standard directory in "git for
windows" on a machine running windows 10 but running into problems.
When launching zsh, I am getting

zsh: failed to load module `zsh/zle': No such file or directory

Is there a way to fix this? FWIW I am using "git for windows" 2.21.0.windows.1 .

To reproduce, do the following in a git bash terminal

Download zsh
~ $ export PS1="\w $ "
~ $ mkdir -p ~/x/software
~ $ cd ~/x/software
~/x/software $ curl
http://repo.msys2.org/msys/x86_64/zsh-5.7.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
--outpu t zsh-5.7.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Install the software
~/x/software $ mkdir -p ~/opt/software/zsh
~/x/software $ tar xJvf zsh-5.7.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz -C ~/opt/software/zsh

Run zsh from the new location
~/x/software $ export PATH="/c/Users/raju/opt/software/zsh/usr/bin":$PATH
~/x/software $ which zsh
/c/Users/raju/opt/software/zsh/usr/bin/zsh
~/x/software $ zsh
zsh: failed to load module `zsh/zle': No such file or directory
\w $


thanks

Presumably you have a pre-compiled version of zsh?  The variable that
determines where shared libraries are found is MODULE_PATH
(colon-separated) or module_path (array).  You need to set
this to include the location where zsh/zle.so was installed.  For
example it's probably got a value like /usr/local/lib/zsh/5.7.1 and
in that case the shell looks for /usr/local/lib/zsh/5.7.1/zsh/zle.so.

It should be OK to set that in ~/.zshenv --- assuming the shell knows
where your home directory is.

Thanks. Setting the MODULE_PATH fixed the error. Also, I had to set
the FPATH variable so that zsh can find the function definitions. For
posterity, here is my ~/.zshenv

export MODULE_PATH=$HOME/opt/software/zsh/usr/lib/zsh/5.7.1:$MODULE_PATH
FPATH=$HOME/opt/software/zsh/usr/share/zsh/functions/Completion:$FPATH

Note that I am not exporting FPATH as suggested in
https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/33898/198064

thanks
