Postgresql 7.1.3 on Win98

    I have been trying to install Postgresql 7.1.3 thru Cygwin under Win98. 
The docs say that it is not supported but do give a reference to 
mha(at)sollentuna(dot)net(dot) I tried to contact this person but got no response.

    Have anyone succeeded in getting Postgresql to run on Win98 recently 
with the Cygwin binaries?

    I have installed cygipc. I start the postmaster with pg_ctl start -o -i. 
When I attempt to connect to the database with psql, I get

pq_flush: send() failed: The descriptor is a file, not a socket
pq_recvbuf: recv() failed: The descriptor is a file, not a socket

    I have tried setting the PGHOST, PGPORT, PGDATA environment variables.

Thanks and regards,

Sushil Kumar
