Subject: Cygwin/X XDMCP Issue
Date: Sat, 17 Jan 2015 11:49:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Im having some issues when running Cygwin/X in combination with XDMCP. 
Opening a cygwin prompt and running 'startx' works as expected. When I 
try to connect to my remote Linux system with the command 'xwin -query' (or with the 'XLaunch' program and choose XDMCP) the 
screen stays black. I get the impression that I do get an connection, 
but that there is a display problem. When I try to close the blacked out 
Window, I get the message 'Exiting will close all screens on this 
display. There are currently 6 clients connected. Proceed with the 
shutdown of this display/server ?'

When i specify 'xwin -retro -query', the cursor appears 
and the screen gets gray-ish, but mouse clicking has no effect.

Setting 'xwin -engine 16 -query' results in a blue 
background and an error: 'Failed asserion key -> size == 0 at line 147 
of file 
in function dixSetPrivate' and a core dump.

Any and all ideas are more than welcome, as I have no idea whats going 
on here.

This is the output of the 'xwin -query' command :

$ xwin -query
