Hello.

I installed cygwin on my windows xp machine with the postrgresql package.  I
run the ipc-daemon2 & command and it goes thru but then I try to create a
cluster using initdb -D usr/local/database the following happens:

$ initdb -D usr/local/database
The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "Owner".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.

creating directory usr/local/database... ok
creating directory usr/local/database/base... ok
creating directory usr/local/database/global... ok
creating directory usr/local/database/pg_xlog... ok
creating directory usr/local/database/pg_clog... ok

initdb: failed
initdb: removing data directory "usr/local/database"


Why does initdb fail for me?
