Please visit the XFree86 web page at .  There
you will find FAQs and documentation on Cygwin XFree86.

If can't get answers to your question by inspecting the resources at the
web site, you can avail yourself of the specific mailing list designed to
discuss xfree86 issues.  I've redirected this discussion there.
