Perhaps because people can't find the info. they need in any other way than posting to this list? I know that I only happened on this list during the past two days because I was a "regular updater" and all of a sudden things just didn't work any more after upgrading. I looked through the FAQ & announcements & didn't see anything that would help me through problems/hiccups with the upgrade... so I joined the list. And I still can't /quite/ get everything that I need working... app-image-san-004:image undefined control XView warning: Cannot load font set '-b&h-lucida-medium-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*' (Font package) XView warning: Unable to open default font set XView error: Cannot open connection to window server: app-image-san-004:10.0 (Server package) app-image-san-004: I'm certain that this is an xset snafu (scripts to invoke mission critical applications at my company expect to see fonts in certain directories on the X server). Symlinks need updating I suppose, and I have to do the mkfontdir shuffle as well on all of my non-cygwin supplied font directories (that got moved)... Sigh... Can someone here provide a link to documentation that we can turn to in a FAQ form to help us proactively identify and fix commonly encountered problems with the update? I'm looking for something like a "HOWTO migrate." If such doesn't exist, I suppose that I can help cook something up from my own experiences... Thanks, Michael PS -- Yaakov & Jon, thanks for all the help & thanks for stepping up and working on Cygwin/X. I know that once the initial pain is over that this will be great for everyone. It's going to be nice to be on a more current X. -- Unsubscribe info: http://cygwin.com/ml/#unsubscribe-simple Problem reports: http://cygwin.com/problems.html Documentation: http://x.cygwin.com/docs/ FAQ: http://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/
