Re: X windows problemsIn what way did UAC prevent you from running X? I've never had trouble
with it (Windows 7 user).
I installed Cygwin earlier this year on
the laptop computer of one of my students. I
typically use a rather barebones configuration
where I have XWin running in the multiwindow
mode. I use Cygwin in order to get tex-live
and GNU Octave running on my crappy WinXP
workstation at the college where I work. I
believe that the installation I did on the
laptop still works.
The notes that I made for myself when I
did the Win7 installation on the laptop were:
1) definitely disable UAC (User Access Control).
The UAC ruins your ability to start up
Cygwin and XWin.
