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

i was reading the instructions for installing on win2k
at http://postgresql.cokernet.com/docs/faq-mswin.

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...
   ./configure
   gmake
   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?
