Using xterm via cygwin
Fri Jul 9 22:59:00 GMT 2004
I'm attempted to start X windows on a WinXP machine with cygwin installed.
My goal is to use xterm and telnet to a remote AIX machine. I'm attempting
this because I need a more robust terminal then the standard 25x80
text-based emulations. However, the command "xterm" and "xterm -display
localhost:0" report the error:
xterm Xt error: Can't open display ""
I assumed this is because the X server is not running so I attempt "startx"
and get this error:
Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
XWin was started with the following command line:
X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard
Fatal server error:
Cannot open log file "/tmp/XWin.log"
winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
How can I correct this? Or if this is not a feasible plan, what other
methods could you recommend to achieve the same goal.
Much thanks in advance,
