I get a similar error:
I am getting the exact same results as you are Jari. I had a working
postgres install just before the return values were changed in cygipc
(1.12), but as i only use it rarely i did not notice the service starting
or not starting up. From what I can see it looks like postgres.exe was not
linked with libcygipc.a.
Jason, can you confirm that postgres is working? Is there anyone else with
IpcSemaphoreInitialize: semctl(id=2, 0, SETVAL, 0) failed: Invalid argument
if the account postmaster is running under ("postgres" in my case)
doesn't have read AND write rights to the /tmp/MultiFile[Sem/Msg/Shm] files.
You may try deleting these files (and /tmp/cygipc_* to be safe), and
starting ipc_daemon manually from the same account as postmaster is
running under. Does that make a difference?
I've added a "chown postgres /tmp/MultiFile*" to my start script for
ipc-daemon, and postgres 7.3 now works beautifully. YMMV, of course.
