Hello everybody,

I tried to install postgresql under cygwin on win nt 4.0 with SP6 
installed. I followed the instructions in
/usr/doc/cygwin/postgresql-7.1.README.
I have replaced cygwin1.dll (1.1.8-2) by the latest snapshot (April 
16) and all further steps succeeded until initdb, which fails:

bash-2.04$ bin/initdb
This database system will be initialized with username "schopen".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server 
process.

initdb failed.
Removing /usr/share/postgresql/data.
Removing temp file /tmp/initdb.194.

Any help? Thanks a lot.
