RH-EL-5 - lockup with CygwinX
Mon Jun 25 22:14:00 GMT 2007
Sorry for breaking the Mail Thread... I had other emergencies to deal with.
But previously I wrote: Subj: RH-EL-4 -vrs- RH-EL-5 (7-jun-2007)
And complained about two machines:
Older RH-EL-4 working great with cygwin-X
New RH-EL-5 and cygwin Locking up.
More specifically, I wrote:

Actually, Holger, it does, in that it tells me more.
In that mode, it NEVER fails. That is to say:
1) SSH into the box and run(a complete KDE) "startkde"
Locks up as I describe.
2) SSH into the box - run "gnome-session"
I had forgotten about GNOME... Duh..
Works - no problem.
3) SSH into the box - run "xterm"
(ie: xterm raw, no window dressing, title bar, etc)
Works just fine -
I can run firefox - works fine
4) Continuing from #3 - xterm raw, no window manager
I can run "twm" - which gives me window dressing, title bar, etc)
Works just fine -
Thus the only combination that does not work is
RH-EL-5, "startkde" and SSH and CYGWIN-X
Note: I have no direct access to the machine, my only access is via SSH
(cygwin-openSSH to be exact).
It works - but I'd like to get the KDE desktop to work.
Holger Krull also suggested:

I started on this machine as a "fresh user" no problem.
Also given the above additional findings - I doubt that is the issue.
