Sat Sep 10 05:24:00 GMT 2005

Dear Sir / Madam,

After I followed the instructions in Cygwin/X web site to install the
cygwin/X, the error occured during running startx.

Patrick & Wendy@patrick-wendy ~
$ cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc

Patrick & Wendy@patrick-wendy ~
$ cd /usr/X11R6/bin && startx

Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project


XWin was started with the following command line:

X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard 

_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
winValidateArgs - g_iNumScreens: 1 iMaxConsecutiveScreen: 1
winCheckDisplayNumber - Cygwin/X is already running on display 0

Fatal server error:
InitOutput - Duplicate invocation on display number: 0. Exiting.

winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress
giving up.
xinit: Connection reset by peer (errno 104): unable to connect to X
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

Patrick & Wendy@patrick-wendy /usr/X11R6/bin

How can I fix this problem?

Moreover, the X logo appears in the right bottom corner destop screen
of Chinese MS Windows 2000.

Thank you for your help and attention!
