Subject: Still can't run XServer or any apps that require it
Date: Sat, 23 Apr 2011 16:47:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <4DB302A9.1090105@gmail.com> (raw)

Cygwin 1.7.9 on Win7SP1.

Almost a week ago now, I've been unable to run my XServer, and thus any 
of the apps that normally run with it, like Emacs.  When I run 
"startxwin", it just says "failed to activate core devices".

Here's the XWin.0.log:
--------------------------------
Welcome to the XWin X Server

OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 [Windows NT 6.1 build 7601] (Win32)
Package: version 1.10.1-1 built 2011-04-22

XWin was started with the following command line:

X :0 -multiwindow

------------------------------

I looked in the FAQ for the entry corresponding to this error, but none 
of the steps found any issues.  I've tried doing "rebaseall" according 
to the instructions, but that hasn't made any difference.  In fact, my 
problems started when I ran "rebaseall" to fix a different problem.  I 
was getting "Doing vfork: resource temporarily unavailable" when I 
started up Emacs, and some advice I found suggested running "rebaseall".

I've run "cygcheck -c" and got all OK.  I ran "cygcheck -s" and the only 
part that seemed vaguely suspicious was this excerpt:
