emacs open display problem
Sun Aug 10 18:49:00 GMT 2008
I have been an avid cygwin user for several years. I recently bought a new HP laptop with Vista, and I immediately installed cygwin. I had a few glitches but was able to figure out fixes for all of them but one: emacs just flat-out refuses to open a display window. This is the only program which has this problem that I know about so far. Everything else that I commonly use works fine.
I've tried the following commands in an xterm, all to no avail:
emacs -d :0 &
emacs -d 0:0 &
I don't get any error messages, but no emacs either.
Emacs is installed, by the way. I can run it in the parent xterm window by
but this doesn't work right either (it freezes up, the keystroke commands don't work right, etc.).
Also, the phantom emacs processes that never open a window show up in ps.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling emacs, but no luck.
I searched the mail archives and couldn't find anyone else who had seen this problem. Any ideas?
