Can't get Cygwin/X to run on my Windows XP
Mon Mar 19 01:28:00 GMT 2007
I recently installed Cygwin/X on my computer , which runs a Windows XP, and
followed the instructions carefully. But everytime (including the first time
I tried) I run the file startxwin.bat, I get the following error message:
Welcome to the XWin X Server
Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
XWin was started with the following command line:
X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard
_XSERVTransSocketINETCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already
winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress
X connection to localhost:0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
I tried installing it on a friend's computer in _exactly in the same way_
and it works there without a hitch. I am frustrated because I need it to run
on my computer, not my friend's. In both installations I set the environment
Can anybody help me resolve this dilemma?
Thanks in advance.
