RE: Can't Open Display

I have had this problem for some time now and was going to reformat
(sometime eventually when I had time) but hey for eduacational purposes here
is my complete installation and config info:
AMD Athlon 700
DFI something or another MOBO
Voodoo 3 3500
Realtech 8139 NIC
Zoltrix winmodem
Ensonique Audio PCI Sound Card
HP - USB CD-Writer
2x DVDDrive (on secondary IDE)
30G Western Digital HD
     3 partitions 5, 10, 15
Belkin Optikal Mouse
Floppy drive
Memorex quiet key keyboard

Win2k (not service packed)
DirectX 7 (not 8)
Media Player 7
IE 5.5
Voodoo 3500 Visual Reality TV
Cygwin (latest version downloaded a week ago)
Half Life
Age of Empires 2
Adobe Premiere
Adobe photoshop
MS Visual J++
Diablo 2
Disk Dump
Office 2000
Omni-x 6.2
Winzip and other misc apps like that.

also I would like to add that when the xserver is not running it takes xterm
a couple of seconds (like 10) as apposed if the x server (both omni x or
Xwin) is started Xterm comes back right away saying it cannot open display (I have tried my ip and varations on the port)
hope this helps

I'll admit that I'm no expert on why X would refuse connections from clients
running on the local machine.

Therefore, I call on you guys to tell us what it is that is unique about
your software configurations that causes this problem.  I would be willing
to bet that if any of you grabbed a spare hard drive and installed Windows,
Cygwin, and Cygwin/XFree86 from scratch, without installing any other
programs, your X clients would be able to connect to the X server.

Prove me wrong.

Tell us why Cygwin/XFree86 does not work on your machine.

I think I speak for most of the list when I humbly say that I have no idea
what is causing your problems.

Good luck, and I look forward to hearing what the problem is,
