I am trying to use a remote program which is installed on a remote linux
machine. In these situations I usually do;
0) on my windows machine I start cygwin and afterwards use startxwin.sh
1) ssh -X name-of-the-gateway-machine
2) ssh -X name-of-the-linux-machine-inside-the-remote-network
3) program-name &
and programs like emacs or firefox appear on my desktop.
But for some other program which uses more advanced graphics it does not
work, I get the following error message;
user@machine:~> Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display "localhost:10.0"
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
Do you know how could I overcome this situation ?
This is more appropriately directed to the Cygwin X list. I've reset the
"Reply-To" there. Please send any follow-up the the Cygwin X list.
From the above, it's clear the application you're trying to use wants
to access the underlying hardware (via OpenGL). This is not supported
in the current Cygwin X server. I believe there is a MinGW version which
has some support for this though. You may want to investigate that.
