Re: Xwin report and partial solution

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...
