Hi, I can't get Emacs to work on Cygwin on Vista. Xemacs works just fine, but Emacs doesn't. When I try to launch Emacs in GUI mode from an xterm, the shell just hangs. When I try to launch it in console mode from a non-X bash shell, the shell just hangs. Again, Xemacs works; it's only Emacs that doesn't work. Running emacs-nox doesn't help. I've also tried using the -d and -nw options, but no joy.
I'm running Cygwin on Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, as follows: $ uname -a CYGWIN_NT-6.0 balance 1.5.25(0.156/4/2) 2008-04-17 12:11 i686 Cygwin The version of Emacs I'm using is one that came with the Cygwin distribution, and is version 21.2.1. I've had no problem using the same Cygwin and Emacs distros on XP Pro. The problem seems to be only on Vista. Stupid Vista... I've googled it to no avail. Any clues?
