I have freshly downloaded 8.0beta3cvs on my cygwin running on Windows 2000

"configure" - "make install"  without any probs

"initdb -D /var/pgsql/data" results in the following error message:

creating template1 database in /var/pgsql/data/base/1 ... FATAL:  could not
create shared memory segment: Function not implemented

I have read around in the newsgroups and found several possible origins for
this failure, what I have done is:

- cygipc is installed and detected by configure:

  > cat config.log | grep shmget
  configure:5699: checking for shmget in -lcygipc

- cygserver is configured and started

- the environment variable CYGWIN is set to contain the word server

  > env|grep CYGWIN
  CYGWIN=binmode ntsec tty server

- ipc-daemon or ipc-daemon2 are not running

what else could I do?

Help is very much appreciated :-)
