Any ideas why it is failing? Something you need me to look at? It isn't
anything in the home files that I copied over from the XP box, because before
I did that, I tried starting and it flashed and died.
A long time ago rxvt changed from supporting Windows (native) to only
working under X-Windows (a.k.a. Cygwin/X or equivalent).
Ah, so in a galaxy far, far, away, it just might work. :-)
Thanks for the reason it no longer works.
To be clear: rxvt still works as an X terminal (although if you have
need of such a thing, I'd strongly suggest you stop using rxvt and
instead use something which has had release this decade, e.g. urxvt)
If you want a windows terminal, use mintty.
