- Subject: cygwin/X: can't start X server...
please let me know if this is the off-topic for cygwin list.
originally right after I installed cygwin, I had impression (I could
I ever be able to start x server and run the rxvt.
today I just couldn't get it work.
I tried from windows "start"->"all program"->...
and from CLI:
[ping@ping-new-laptop ~]$ startxwin.exe
startxwin: unable to run server "X": No such file or directory
Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display. Possible server names include:
XWin X Server for the Cygwin environment on Microsoft Windows
startxwin: giving up
startxwin: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
startxwin: server error
the only thing I did could be that I just installed cygwinport, but I don't
think that will cause any issues to my cygwin, cygwin/X apps...
please advice how to troubleshoot this kind of issue.
