Hello all,

I just compiled and installed PostgreSQL 7.4 on a cygwin/WinXP platform.
When I try to run the initdb command, I get the results below.  Has anyone
had a similar problem, and/or does anyone know what I should do to get
around this?



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

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.
