Subject: Re: Unable to open socket for inet
Date: Thu, 04 Aug 2011 20:18:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The first problem I found is that you must leave SYSTEMROOT set to 
c:\windows, not to /c/windows or /cygdrive/c/windows.  This allowed ping 
to work.

However, I'm still having X issues (but it got farther):

bash> startxwin
