X forwarding works for Cygwin client but not for Debian
Fri Jul 16 23:15:00 GMT 2010
I seem to be able to make X forwarding work between my Cygwin clients,
but not between a Debian client and Cygwin SSH server(at least not
properly). The weird thing is that I can run something like "xcalc" from
the Debian shell without any issues, it just pops up as expected, but
"Gvim" gives me error. This is what I get when I try to run Gvim from a
connected Debian shell (ssh -X host)
Vim: Caught deadly signal SYS
Bad system call
When I run "vim" I get no problem(in the forwarded connection), so I
assume there is some kind of issue with the Gui version.
I can connect to same server with a Cygwin client and run "Gvim" in a
forwarded session no problem.
I am really not sure what I am doing wrong here. I am not very literate
about these problems. I do not even know what logs I can provide in this
email. So if anyone needs to know more please let me know. I can try
providing whatever is needed to figure out the issue.
