I am seeing an odd failure of initdb.exe (postgres 8.0.1) on windows that
I have not encountered before. The output from initdb is:
The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.
creating directory D:/E-NetAware-Data/db ... ok

DETAIL: Failed system call was shmget(key=1, size=1163264, 03600).
child process was terminated by signal 1
initdb: removing data directory "D:/E-NetAware-Data/db"
I have seen the "could not create shared memory segment" error in the past
when running the cygwin based port of postges on windows when I had
forgotten to run cygipc first. I've also seen it on solaris boxes before
bumping up their kernel resources in /etc/system. I have never seen it in
the native port of postgres on windows however.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
