I have same issue. I have reinstalled Cygwin 5 times. Each time I can start
XWin fine UNTIL I rebaseall or perlrebase or until I uninstall+reinstall
perl/Tk. The .log file is from the first couple times it sucessfully came up
(prior to the rebase and the errors) and nothing is written to any logfiles or
even STDERR/STDOUT except for the:
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
startxwin: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
startxwin: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
I have added the env variable CYGWIN=tty but still nothing more informative is
written to any files or terminal.
My hardware is a HP EliteBook sitting on MS XP Pro version 2002 SP3. I have
altered the rebaseall script to actually complete, as it is failing on the
64bit dlls. ( added filter to sed to not include the specific dlls from list
creation ) I have tried this both ways in 'stock' form from repository and
altered to complete.
This is 100% reproducible. I can reproduce this every time even with fully
fresh installs of cygwin.
My goal is to get a version of Cyg X running that I can run cssh and have a
full menubar ( this is why the initial rebase and then the subsequent
reinstalls and the mucking about with the Perl/Tk stuff )
