The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** XFree86-base-4.3.0-5
*** XFree86-bin-4.3.0-16
*** XFree86-etc-4.3.0-10
*** XFree86-nest-4.3.0-7
*** XFree86-prog-4.3.0-17
*** XFree86-vfb-4.3.0-7
*** XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-56


1) base, bin, nest, prog, vfb, xserv - Change build system files to stop 
linking against cygipc and instead use SHM support that is now built 
into cygwin1.dl.  Note that you will now use 'cygserver' to setup 
cygserver as a Windows Service instead of ipc-daemon2 to enable MIT-SHM 
support for Cygwin/X.  Please see the cygserver documentation (google 
for it if you have to) for more information.  (Harold L Hunt II - 

2) etc - Remove accidentally included /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file which 
conflicted with the X-startup-scripts package and caused 'startx' to 
revert to its previous ugly behavior.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "XFree86"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

Please send questions or comments to the Cygwin/X mailing list at:

If you want to subscribe go to:

I would appreciate if you would use this mailing list rather than
emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and comments about the setup
utility or Cygwin/X in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
list is the appropriate place.
