Re: Xwin report and partial solution

Hi, friends,

yesterday I tried to run the cygwin X server, but it did not run.

It cried about being unable to bind to the ipv6 address or so.

   Browsing the mail list I've seen several requests for help, but I
have not found the solution that I applied: install the ipv6 stack.
Once I installed the ipv6 stack on windows xp (the command to be run
is just "ipv6 install"; I don't know about other versions of windows),
Xwin runs without problems.

I haven't seen anyone pointing to that solution.

However, I'd like if the maintainer could remove such dependency...

Cygwin X issues, comments, and questions should be sent to the cygwin-xfree list.
