Welcome to my software blog. My name is Jeff, and I am a Software Engineer from Ohio. Spike (the green guy in my avatar) is a turtle (I know, you can’t really tell) and is my mascot buddy. Here I share my software development experiences, primarily in C#.

    copied a cygwin folder that was installed on my laptop hard drive to an external hard drive. startx on laptop hard drive works, but startx on external hard drive gives me the following:

    waiting for X server to begin accepting connections.
    after 3 or 4 minutes I get:

    xinit: giving up
    xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused

    Do you know how to fix this so I can run cygwin X window applicaions from my external hard drive? I am using the batch file from your blog to start cygwin on my external drive.

    Thanks, Mike
