Dear All,


In November 2016 I tried several times to install Cygwin 2.6.0 from

the official cite setup-x86_64.exe form various mirrors. Installation always ended with an error:Package: _/x3270
               x3270.sh exit code 1

can you try to run the script
etc/postinstall/x3270.sh

There is a known issue with this postinstall. It invokes mkfontdir which throws an error because of the options it uses. This can be ignored. I'll fix it eventually.

If no failure is reported you can rename it as
etc/postinstall/x3270.sh.done
so that will not be rerun next time you run the setup.

Just rename it.

You will need to manually rebuild the font cache with mkfontdir.

I am using windows 10 on a Dell Laptop XPS 15.
When I tried startx from mintty, it always crashes.

Have you tried startxwin ?

When reporting problem please follows
Problem reports:       http://cygwin.com/problems.html

and attach the cygcheck.out.

Regards
Marco
