Re: Postgres and CYGWIN environment variable

/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/postgresql-8.2.11.README also says
"cygrunsrv is not required anymore, pg_ctl has now the service functions
cygserver must run as service"

Then at the end
"For the impatient: install as user (easy)
    cygrunsrv -S cygserver
    initdb -D /usr/share/postgresql/data
So.. is that cygrunsrv required, or not?

I ask, because I can't do this
  $ /usr/sbin/initdb -D /usr/share/postgresql/data
 The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "jg".
 This user must also own the server process.

 The database cluster will be initialized with locales
   COLLATE:  de_CH.ISO-8859-1
   CTYPE:    de_CH.ISO-8859-1
   MESSAGES: en_US.ISO-8859-1
   MONETARY: de_CH.ISO-8859-1
   NUMERIC:  de_CH.ISO-8859-1
   TIME:     de_CH.ISO-8859-1
 The default database encoding has accordingly been set to LATIN1.

(doing that after the cygrunsrv works just fine.)

Non-kook (allegedly)
