I am not running the X server.

It has been a few months since I update cygwin.  Until I did git was working fine.
I installed doxygen, and from ports I installed graphviz.

I redacted cygcheck.out

Thanks, Jim Jensen

Have you noted that you have also D:\cygnus\cygwin-b20\H-i586-cygwin32\bin in parallel to cygwin-1.7.9

and that libtk8.5.dll is not coming from cygwin ?

By chance, in your last update
"Last downloaded files from:";

did something go wrong ?
