XWin: problems on un-networked machine
Sun Feb 22 11:50:00 GMT 2004
For a while I've been able to use XWin running from a reduced Cygwin-on-CD
on a non-networked machine by using the command line
mount -buf $TMPDIR /tmp/
XWin -nolisten local -multiwindow &
(ther first line is intended to allow the writing on XWin.log and, in the
past, has achieved exactly this). However, lately, and including the most
recent update of XWin _and_ the latest (I think) snapshot of cygwin1.dll,
this has now failed, with no logfile XWin.log written. The application XWin
"dies" immediately, as shown by ps.
1. I attach cygcheck.out
2. Sorry, I know this is an essentially pointless question, but _why_ does
XWin require internet access??!! and, are there other / better switches I
should or could be using than "-nolisten local" to render the application
useable on a non-networked machine?
