Subject: Tried to fix  "Doing vfork: resource temporarily unavailable" error with Emacs, now can't start X server
Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2011 22:30:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <4DAB6A08.7060002@gmail.com> (raw)

Cygwin 1.7.8 (and 1.7.9), Win7SP1.

I was having issues with my Emacs startup occasionally failing with  
"Doing vfork: resource temporarily unavailable".  I found a link that 
alleged to have the solution to this 
(http://blog.cottee.org/2008/05/cygwin-emacs-problems.html).

I followed these steps, although when I looked at "libncurses7", I saw 
it was set to "Skip", and that I had versions 8, 9, and 10.  So, I set 
those to reinstall and continued the update.  It also updated some other 
things, including updating me from Cygwin 1.7.8 to 1.7.9.

Now, when I run "startxwin", it chugs for a bit and then presents an 
error dialog saying "Failed to activate core devices".  The log file 
contents follows this.  It fails like this every time now.
