Window 10 authorization problems




Troubles through several cygwin releases with getting the files to have the right permissions when running startwinx from an initial cygwin64 terminal. Messages follow:

xauth:  /home/mukx/.serverauth.7284 not writable, changes will be ignored
xauth:  /home/mukx/.Xauthority not writable, changes will be ignored
xauth:  timeout in locking authority file /home/mukx/.Xauthority

winInitMultiWindowWM - DISPLAY=:0.0
winMultiWindowXMsgProc - DISPLAY=:0.0
winMultiWindowXMsgProc - Could not open display, try: 1, sleeping: 5
winInitMultiWindowWM - Could not open display, try: 1, sleeping: 5

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections .
..
winMultiWindowXMsgProc - Could not open display, try: 2, sleeping: 5
winInitMultiWindowWM - Could not open display, try: 2, sleeping: 5

and so on until the system gives up.

A directory listing gives:

  ----------  2 mukx          mukx             0 Jan 18 18:44 .serverauth.7284-c   ----------  2 mukx          mukx             0 Jan 18 18:44 .serverauth.7284-l
  ----------  1 mukx          mukx            54 Jan 18 18:44 .Xauthority
  ----------  2 mukx          mukx             0 Jan 18 18:44 .Xauthority-c
  ----------  2 mukx          mukx             0 Jan 18 18:44 .Xauthority-l

On Window 7 these files are properly read,write for the user.
