Start Problem

I'm getting the same problem as the mail stated below,
Anyone has ideas how to solve it??

$ ./startxwin.bat
startxwin.bat - Starting on Windows NT/2000
xterm Xt error: Can't open display:
twm:  unable to open display ""
xterm Xt error: Can't open display:
xsetroot:  unable to open display ''

Other startup scripts too fail, giving one or the other
similar result,



I just install the latest versions of cygwin and XFree86.
I use a medion notebook with XP Window.

I meet a problem to start the server X.

-> If I try "sh /usr/X11R6/bin/" the error message is :

xsetroot : unable to open display ''
twm : unable to open display ""

-> If I try "startx" the error message is now :

xinit : Connection refused (errno 111) : unavble to connect to X server
xinit : no such process (errno 3) : Server error

I find some thing about the first message in the FAQ but this does not
help me.

Thanks you for your help and your proposals
