Updating cygwin libraries

To get aboard with Rails, install the From there on out, you're on your own. The Cygwin DLL currently works with all recent, commercially released x86 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows, starting with Windows Vista. The most recent version of the Cygwin DLL is 3.0.7.Cygwin/X consists of an X server, X libraries, and nearly all of the standard X clients, such as xterm, xhost, xdpyinfo, xclock, xeyes, etc. Cygwin is licensed under a modified GNU General Public License that specifically allows libcygwin.a to be linked to programs that are licensed under an Open Source Definition compliant license without such linking requiring that those Open Source programs be licensed under the GNU General Public License (see the Cygwin licensing page for more information).

Cygwin/X is installed via Cygwin's Installer, either setup-x86_64(for the 64-bit version), or setup-x86(for the 32-bit version of Cygwin), and the installation process is documented in the Cygwin/X User's Guide.

Whether or not you already have Cygwin installed, you can add Cygwin/X to your installation by downloading and running setup, and selecting the 'xinit' package from the 'X11' category.

Install Cygwin by running setup-x86_64(64-bit installation) or setup-x86(32-bit installation) Use the setup program to perform a fresh install or to update an existing installation.

Keep in mind that individual packages in the distribution are updated separately from the DLL so the Cygwin DLL version is not useful as a general Cygwin distribution release number.

It is therefore beyond the scope of the Cygwin/X User's Guide to document all of these X Window System components.

To find documentation, for example, for setxkbmap one should consult the generic X documentation such as the setxkbmap(1) manual page.

For example, when using IPv6 on a machine only configured with IPv4, or when your windows firewall is blocking some tests, etc.
