Hello PostgreSQL hackers,

I'm forwarding an extract of a message from the cygwin mailing list.  

The thread which started the message was:
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2004-07/msg00712.html

The problem is illustrated below:
(If it's of any use, Cygserver has been run successfully and CYGWIN=server was set.)

-------FORWARDED MESSAGE ------------

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

The database cluster will be initialized with locale
C.

---------------------------------------

What does the line 

"FATAL:  shmat(id=1179648) failed: Invalid argument".

mean?

Thanks!

Best Regards,

Carlo
