xterm and gnuplot errors

I get the following errors:

I still get these errors after having done:

Uninstalled Norton Internet Security 2008
Turned on the Windows Firewall

Attached cygcheck.out

These errors don't always occur.  Sometimes the commands work and xterm 
or the gnuplot window
appears.  Also there are still references to Symantec in the Windows 
registry.

unable to configure mpich2 in xterm - worked fine in non-X cygwin terminal

I recently tried to configure and make mpich2 for a parallel programming class.  I was working from an xterm
window running bash.  The configure script would hang on certain checks.  Another student had the exact
same problem on his machine too.

We discovered that we could configure and build the exact same sources from the standard non-X11 cygwin terminal.

Attached are the outputs from cygcheck -s -v -r taken both in the xterm window and the default Cygwin terminal.

Thanks,

Carl Anderson

Ronald, you should post that to the cygwin mailing list.  And be more
specific. AFAIK, rsync is a cygwin package.

Search the cygwin mail list archives.

I discovered a long standing issue with rsync on Cygwin that to the
best of my knowledge was never resolved, it fails under certain
conditions having to do with a sync error in the protocol which I
believe is related to an xon/xoff error on the local pipe.

I now use rsync under Linux/CentOS no problem and use SyncBack on
Windows when I need this sort of functionality.  Perhaps you might
have better luck.

This almost certainly has nothing to do with X, so it's really OT
here.

My WAG is that your makefile invokes a native windows program at
some point, and that program doesn't understand cygwin's ptys.
I suggest searching the archives for the main cygwin list where 
you'll find similar questions have been asked (and answered) many 
times before.

What exactly is your problem? Do you have any errors you could provide?

Start X server crashes with dual monitors

Hello,

Windows XP Pro + SP3, cygwin 1.5.25-11,
GeForce8600 GT (NVIDIA chipset), 2 DVI monitors 1680*1050 as dual span.

My goal is to use cygwin as a good xterm for remote login.
For this I need to click "Start X Server (needed for emacs and surf)"
and then click xterm itself.
Unfortunately 5 attempts to install cygwin on this computer has failed -
- installation itself is ok, but I can't use it.

Clicking icon "Start X Server (needed for emacs and surf)" produces error:

"A fatal error has occurred and Cygwin/X will now exit"
XWin was started with the following command line:
/usr/X11/bin/XWin - multiwindow -clipboard -silent -dup-error

Below is /tmp/XWin.log

(WW) /tmp mounted int textmode
_XSERVTransmkdir: ERROR: euid != 0,directory /tmp/.X11-unix will not be created.
