I found some stuff on my own:
searching "missing cygrunsrv" with google leaded me to a
not installed package cygrunsrv. I started setup.exe again,
selected the Admin -> cygrunsrv and installed the package.
Now cygserver-config runs, asked me whether to start cygserver
as service. I don't know why, I want to enabel shared memory only.
The skript telled me to have generated /etc/cygserver.conf.
I lookes at it: lots of options concerning shared mem. But
I don't understand ..
I uncommented some shared and shm stuff:
After I stared cygwin again with startx -- -multiwindow ,
I typed "xhost +" so that kuickshow from a linux-Server
can be displayed. But kuickshow png and jpg rest black.
The script cygserver-config proposed me to start cygserver
as service. The cygserver within den cygserver as service??
I don't understand. But I did so:
net start cygserver
cygrunsrv -S cygserver
was proposed, I took net start cygserver within a cygwin terminal.
I got success messages. What is now better than before?
I started kuickshow from linux server again. But png and jpg
are still displayed black.
Is shared memory enabled now? How can I detect settings?
What have I to do to enabled shared memory?
