[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.17.0-1 (TEST)


The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.17.0-1

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

This is the first release of the xserver 1.17 series.  It is currently 
available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately 
two weeks, if no major regressions are reported.

Please try test releases and report problems to the Cygwin/X mailing 
list.  Testing helps ensure good releases!

Unfortunately, the upstream announce mail [1] does not contain a full 
changelog since 1.16, so you will need to consult the changelog or git 
for a list of upstream fixes and improvements.

There are no (intentional) cygwin-specific changes since 1.16.3-1.

NOTE: In X server 1.17, the creation of indirect GLX contexts is 
prohibited by default.  The +iglx option is required to allow them.  See 
[2] for more information on possible OpenGL configurations.

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xinit-1.3.4-4

The following package has been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* xinit-1.3.4-4

xinit contains commands used for starting X sessions.

This release includes the following changes:

* ~/.startxwinrc files which are not executable are warned about and
skipped by startxwin.

* Fixes for gnome-keyring-daemon and evolution-alarm-notify in the
default startxwinrc.

* The Xsession script will read /usr/share/xsessions/$NAME.desktop, if
present, when passed NAME as an argument.

* Avoid collisions with the Start Menu shortcuts if both 32-bit and
64-bit Cygwin are installed.

* Silences the harmless XFree86_VT warning.

* Add a profile.d for the fish shell.

Cannot run Qt5 applications.

I'm having difficulty running any Qt5 application. These are the 
commands I'm issuing:

     XWin -multiwindow &
     export DISPLAY=:0.0
     xclock &

and I see the clock, so X is up and running. Then:

     /usr/lib/qt5/examples/gui/analogclock/analogclock
     QXcbConnection: XCB error: 145 (Unknown), sequence: 162, resource 
id: 0, major c
     ode: 140 (Unknown), minor code: 20
     Bad system call (core dumped)

and no clock.

I've tried compiling a really trivial Qt5 example (attached):

     g++ -I/usr/include/qt5 -I/usr/include/qt5/QtWidgets 
-I/usr/include/qt5/QtGui \
     -o qt5-demo qt5-demo.cpp -lQt5Widgets -lQt5Core

And then running ./qt5-demo gives:

     QObject::connect: signal not found in QPushButton
     QObject::connect: signal not found in QWidget
     QObject::connect: signal not found in QWidget
     QXcbConnection: XCB error: 145 (Unknown), sequence: 162, resource 
id: 0, major

Cygwin, Python Anaconda 32-bit, Google Cloud SDK: Issues with Python functionality inside of Cygwi

Hello, 

I am new to Cygwin, and am not sure what to make of my current issue regarding Python and, ultimately, Google
Cloud's SDK and bdutl package, required for me to deploy a Hortonworks platform Hadoop/Apache toolkit
NoSQL db et al.
When I went to install Cygwin, I did not see an option for Python 2.7, which is what the GC SDK requires (more
specifically, 2.7 32-bit).  As such, I installed an Anaconda distro version.  After fighting with Cygwin
to use this install as my Python of choice for Cygwin applications (I ended up actually having to delete
from my environmental variables reference to the native 64-bit version I usually use, as modifications
to the $PATH did not change anything), I am left with a half-functional version of Python, and
non-functional GC SDK.

Pasted below are snippets from my terminal sessions.  If anyone can make sense of this, and point me in the
direction of resolving the issue(s), I will be very greatful.

Mersee 

--FIRST, MAKE SURE PYTHONPATH IS CORRECT
MJ <at> Speed_rAcer ~
$ which python
/cygdrive/c/Users/MJ/Anaconda/python

--NEXT SHOW THAT I AM IN THE CYGWIN HOME DIR
MJ <at> Speed_rAcer ~
$ pwd
/cygdrive/c/Users/MJ/home

--NEXT TEST A PYTHON SCRIPT
MJ <at> Speed_rAcer ~
$ python test.py

startxwin failing after most recent updates

I updated Cygwin (which pulled in a bunch of Cygwin-X updates) and
now startxwin no longer works.  According to the log (below) it starts
the XServer successfully but then shuts down.

My .startxwinrc is an empty (zero-length) file to prevent automatic
launching of the default clients, which I don't need.

The log output is
