Re: [GENERAL] Problems with initdb on Cygwin

Hi Rick,

Thanks heaps for the offer.  :)

One of our users Joerg kindly pointed out a solution (and when tested,
it solved the problem).

It seems there's a lack of info about needing cygipc to be installed
when installing cygwin.

Would it be possible to add something about it to the cygwin FAQ?  It's
possible PostgreSQL is the only one affected, but I'm not sure.

Again, thanks heaps for the positive response.

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
