Hi Alvaro,

I just compiled version 9.1.3 and got quite the same error.

I still do not have any clue what to change, as the compile runs successfully without any error.

Regards Wilfried

Betreff: Fwd: AW: [BUGS] BUG #6334: initdb not working

I'm forwarding a reply I got to my personal email.  I have no idea what
to do with this report.  The interesting extract from the attached log
file is:

initializing dependencies ... ok
creating system views ... FATAL:  column "?column?" specified more than once
     * PostgreSQL System Views

Wilfried: please CC the list in replies always.

Hi Alvaro,

sorry for answering so late.

I asked my AIX systems administrator for support on this issue. However they had no idea what kind of strace I could run to get more detailed information.

Could you please give me any advice how to trace this bug?

Attached you find the debugging output of initdb. This is the only information I have at the moment. Maybe this helps a little bit.

Best Regards / Mit freundlichen Grüssen

With the amount of info in this report, it seems quite unlikely that we
would be able to come up with an explanation.  Maybe the operating
system is silently failing the mkdir() calls.  Would you run it under
some sort of strace equivalent?
