X forwarding issue
X forwarding issue
I have a confusing issue with x forwarding on my Octane (Irix 6.5.30, neko_sshd). For an unknown reason, some apps (fm) fail  with the following error messaging using mobaxterm on Windows on ssh -Y on linux mint, while other apps (toolchest, nedit, xclock) work fine. 

This is particularly confusing because everything works fine with the same clients connecting to my Indigo2 (Irix 6.5.22, same version of neko_ssh) with identical /usr/nekoware/etc/sshd, chkocnfig, and other settings. 

The error:
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
 Major opcode of failed request:  128 (XINERAMA)
 Minor opcode of failed request:  1 (XINERAMAGetState)
 Resource id in failed request:  0xa9010000
 Serial number of failed request:  760
 Current serial number in output stream:  760

Also confusing is that xinerama is disabled on the Octane (using chkconfig), and it only has one display adapter at the moment -- so it shouldn't be enabled in any case. (I've also tried enabling it, which didn't have an impact).

After additional troubleshooting, I found that x forwarding for these apps does work in MobaXterm if I use a window-based (vs. free floating) window manager. This isn't ideal -- and isn't neccessary on my Indigo2 (or previous OS installs on the same Octane). 

Any thoughts on what could be the issue or how to get it working?
