Hello,
yesterday (2001-11-06) I downloaded the complete cygwin-snapshot and tried to initialize postgres, but initdb failed with the following messages

"This database system will be initialized with username "User".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.

Sucess. You can start the database server using:
/usr/bin/postmaster - D /usr/local/pgsql/data
or
/usr/bin/pg_ctl  -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -l logfile"

When I then run postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data I get the following messages:

"DEBUG: database system was shut down at 2001-11-07 09:08:14
DEBUG: CheckPoint record at (0, 1563240)
DEBUG: Redo record at (0, 1563240); Undo record at (0, 0); Shutdown TRUE
DEBUG: NextTransactionId: 615; Next0id: 18720
DEBUG: database system is in production state"

so, and then nothing goes anymore. I tried it out both under Win98 and Win 2000 and used cygipc 1.10-1 and the results were the same.
Can anybody help me??

Yours
Karin
