    Unanswered:

    As far as I know, you can only build the postgresql client programs on nt, not the server itself. That gives you psql so that you can connect to a db on a unix box.

    I do believe, however, that you can get the server binary as part of the cygwin install. You could probably build it yourself under cygwin. But the binary should be all you'd want.

    cheers

    cygwin

    In the cygwin package are the binariers fpr the postgresql already included

    One tip.

    Do not compile postgres under cygwin
    doesn't work so easy :-)

    Angry CygWin -I have no name

    I get this message when I install the Cygwin-package to get into the postgres. Since I have no extended Unix-experience all the shell commands there is a little strange to me.

    I have understood that it is something missing in my /etc. echo $USEr shows '500' and I am not allowed to start the postmaster because of that.

    Could I please get some help with what lines I need to edit?
    the directory for Cygwin:
    C:\Web\CygWin

    and for psql:
    /usr/local/pgsql/data

    I have installed the package under a NT-user called 'postgres'.

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Axier

    User problem

    First of all

    Did you install the ipc-daemon?


    During the install you were asked if all users
    or one user should use cygwin

    when you start cygwin there is a prompt

    user@pcname

    and this user named there is the right one.
