Jason,

I've found that removing the ntsec option the the CYGWIN envvar has cured my
initdb problem. With ntsec, whilst I could read/write to /tmp and other
places, access denied error messages on other directories including some I
had just created myself (with suitable permissions) lead me to believe that
there is something seriously wrong with it. I have also tried installing
from scratch whilst logged in as the PC's local administrator rather than
myself which made no difference.

I'm now left with a single (new) error when starting the postmaster:

PC20 $ postmaster -i &
[1] 1180
PC20 $ C:\cygwin\bin\postgres.exe: *** recreate_mmaps_after_fork_failed
postmaster: Startup proc 724 exited with status 256 - abort

[1]+  Exit 1                  postmaster -i
PC20 $

The output from cygcheck is as follows:

Thanks for your help to date,

Regards, Dave.


PC20 $ cygcheck -s -v -r
