i'm new at this but i'll at least be thorough ;)

i was reading the instructions for installing on win2k

so i download the latest cygwinsetup.exe and run the
full install (including source files which takes for
freakin' ever).

i then install cygipc 1.09-2 into the cygwin/usr
directory and start the daemon (not as a service but
just straight up).

i launch the cygwin bash shell and cd to the postgres
7.1.2 directory and start running the commands per the
admin manual (pdf version). the commands are...
   gmake install
   adduser postgres
   su - postgres
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data >logfile 2>&1 &
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/createdb test
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/psql test

first, there isn't a gmake. but, being the bright sort of
bear that i am i just used make instead and it seems to
work. well, mostly. i get lots of good stuff being dumped
to stdout that says that things are being built up until
the very end where i get the following...

in cygwin/usr/local/pgsql/bin i have the following files that have
been created...
08/08/2001  03:47p             298,036 ecpg.exe

08/08/2001  03:47p                 104 postmaster.lnk

reading from the instructions that say...
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/createdb test
   /usr/local/pgsql/bin/psql test

i notice that createdb and psql don't exist. i'm figuring that
the compiler errors above are responsible for that.

i'm guessing that something in cygwin is not properly configured
but since i am new at this i have no idea...

many thanks!


ps - the adduser and su commands don't exist either. i'm guessing
that since i'm on win2k that there isn't a real need for them
since everyone is a superuser?
