problem with opengl (glxgears) running on cygwin ....

When I try to run glxgears locally, it displays the initial gears,
but now they are just frozen.  It doesn't work remotely, either,
which was what I tried initially.  It *used* to work -- remotely
at 20-30 frames/second (as measured by fraps).

Interestingly enough, I get a glx window, -- fraps will display
30 (the right number for my screen refresh rate), in the right corner
of the glxgears window... but the gears don't move.

Same effect happens when I try remotely.  Window comes up with gears
displayed, but no motion.  Fraps also shows 30 FPS.

When I do glxinfo (with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose), I get (more below):

name of display: :0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
server glx vendor string: SGI

Problem of Starting Xterm using the System Tray Icon for Xterm for Cygwin64

Hi

I just installed Cygwin 64 on my 64-bit Cygein 64 PC, and found that 
the Xterm in the system tray icon is no longer working.  

The Xwin server system tray icon has the following target

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin.exe

It works fine as the 32-bit version, click on the icon, I can start X 
server and open a small Xterm window.

However, the Xterm system tray icon with the target defined as

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/xterm -sl 1000 -
geometry 120x40  -fn -adobe-courier-bold-r-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*  
-sb -rightbar -fg black -bg white -display 127.0.0.1:0.0'

failed to open an xterm window.

The 32 bit version of the Xterm short icon with the target defined as

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/xterm -sl 1000 -
geometry 120x40  -fn -adobe-courier-bold-r-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*  
-sb -rightbar -fg black -bg white -display 127.0.0.1:0.0'

is still working, but only open to the 32-bit Cygwin environment.

Any idea on solving this problem?

Problem launching XTerm on new Cygwin installation

I just installed the 64-bit version of Cygwin on both a desktop PC and a laptop PC.
On the desktop, everything worked as expected without problems. On the laptop, I
have the following problems:

When I launch a shell window, I get the following error:

Your group is currently "mkgroup". This indicates that neither your gid nor your pgsid is in /etc/group.

Also, when I try to launch an XTerm, I get the following message in the XTerm window for
just a few seconds and then the window goes away:

/cygdrive/c/Apps/cygwin/bin/xterm: Could not exec XTERM_SHELL=XTERM_SHELL=: No such file or directory

I'm starting the XWin Server using a shortcut with the following:

C:\Apps\cygwin\bin\run.exe
         /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c
         "/usr/bin/startxwin.exe -- -emulate3buttons -multiwindow -clipboard -swcursor"

I'm starting the XTerm using a shortcut with the following:

C:\Apps\cygwin\bin\run.exe
         -p /usr/X11R6/bin xterm +tb -sb -sl 5000 -display 127.0.0.1:0.0 -ls /bin/zsh -l

I've searched for this XTERM_SHELL error, but can't find anything. Can anybody help me?

Thanks,

Problem with Multi-Key Sequences... They Seem To Be Filtered Out By XWin

Hello,

I downloaded a new copy of Cygwin in the last 5 days (effectively started from scratch) and am trying to use
XWin on a Windows 7 virtual machine running an old proprietary X program (it's called x6530 which is a
terminal emulator for a proprietary terminal built originally by Tandem Computers and now owned by
Hewlett Packard.) 

I start up the server and window manager using the following command:
	   /usr/bin/setsid \
                     /usr/bin/XWin \
                     -mwextwm \
                     -multimonitors \
                     -internalwm \
                     -nowinkill \
                    &

I'm trying to use multi-key sequences like Control_L-Alt_L-F6, Shift_L-Control_L-F6, etc.  I do see
that xev recognizes these sequences but the Control_L and Alt_L keys seem to be filtered out when I run
x6530.   All it seems to get is F6 or Shift_L-F6.

I've tried different window managers, run /usr/bin/XWin directly, used the right-hand modification
keys like Control_R,  etc. and no matter what I try, I see the same filtering behavior in x6530.    I have
recently used exceed (formally owned by Hummingbird) with x6530 and the Control_L and Alt_L keys are
passed to x6530 as expected so my suspicion is that XWin is responsible for the unwanted behavior of
filtering out the keys like Control_L and Alt_L keys.

Is this the case?  Is there a way to get these sequences "unfiltered".

 If there is additional information I can provide, please let me know.

Emacs just stopped working for no reason

I was away on vacation for a week.  Cygwin / X / GNU Emacs 24.3.1 were
all working normally when I left.  I left the computer powered on
while I was away.  No software was updated on the computer during that
time, though I am running the BOINC software for World Community Grid.
 Computer is running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

I left a couple of xterm windows open before I left, because there was
some work I wanted to be reminded of when I got home.

Upon arriving home last night, I tried to fire up Emacs, but now it's
not working.  It either says "memory exhausted" or just hangs.

I rebooted, nothing changed.

I started "ash" and ran "rebaseall -v".  Still, nothing changed.

This is not the first time that Emacs has died.  The only way to fix
the problem is to completely re-install Cygwin from scratch.

Is there *any* way to try to figure out what is causing this?

Clipboard integration does not work with XDMCP

Hello,
	 I need to connect from my PC to a Linux machine that runs KDE and I 
use the following command:

	XWin -from MY_PC_IP_ADDR -terminate -query LINUX_MACHINE_IP_ADDR

It works well but the clipboard integration that fails.

Notice that:
	1) XWin alone (i.e. no XDMCP, i.e. local) works nicely with my Windows 
clipboard
	2) Xming works (almost) fine with XDMCP + clipboard (with the same 
Linux machine)

I gave a look at the XWin log in two cases:
	A) XWin alone
	B) XWin + XDMCP

And the only differences I've found (apart from the different command 
line arguments) is the following lines that were at the end of the log 
of the XDMCP invokation:

winProcEstablishConnection - winInitClipboard returned.
winClipboardThreadProc - DISPLAY=:0.0
winClipboardProc - XOpenDisplay () returned and successfully opened the 
display.
winClipboardIOErrorHandler!
winClipboardProc - setjmp returned for IO Error Handler.
winClipboardProc - trying to restart clipboard thread
winClipboardThreadProc - DISPLAY=:0.0
