using ssh-Y on Vista
Thu Mar 6 09:42:00 GMT 2008
I am having a problem with X-windows forwarding from a fresh
installation of cygwin and X on Longhorn Vista (cygcheck.out
attached). Basically when I do
ssh -vv -Y me@linuxserver
debug2: x11_get_proto: /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth list :0.0 2>/dev/null
(and the xterm hangs).
Here is what I tried having read all the postings I could find. Still no luck.
1. I've reinstalled Cygwin thrice completely from scratch including
removing all files, changing permissions etc.
2. My Firewall and User Account Control are disabled. My Norton is
UN-installed. I renamed setup.exe to some other name. I am using
Compatibility with WinXpSP2 and run the setup As Administrator.
3. I followed suggestions to rebaseall.
4. During install I pushed manually the postinstall script
postinstall/post-texmf.sh (killed and executed from bash; probably no
connection though but I will mention that I fixed 'w' permissions to
some folders etc.).
Now: My /usr/X11/bin/startx works fine, I can fork xterms as usual.
I can ssh to me@linuxserver just fine, but I just can NOT do XWindows
forwarding as in using ssh -vv -Y ****. My three other installations
of cygwin-X that I have on Win2K and WinXP have worked nicely for the
last few years and still do including ssh -Y me@linuxserver.
So this is likely not a problem on my linuxserver side ... ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated ... my apology if I did not find
just the *right* posting .... Thanks, Malgo
