Installation Problem

paul brasseur

Hello:

         I  am attempting to install Postgresql on a system running WINXP.

         I start the cygserver and then give the initdb command in
the installation documentation. It just generates a series of Bad
System Calls Error Messages,
as it calls postgres.exe.

         I have had no problem with the Installation of Emacs, Vim,
Apache, Perl, or Python.

         Any Suggestions why PGSQL will not install ?


Regards,

Maybe you forgot:
export CYGWIN=server
