Hi guys,

I just installed the latest release of Postgres (8.2 native version) on
Win XP Pro). When I try to run psql through Cygwin, I cannot get to the
postgres terminal. I mean I type in the password, and the feeling is
that it just hangs.

It all works fine from Windows terminal.

Any ideas at all?

Thanks a lot!

Serge

P.S. I remember I played with Postgres 8.0 about a year ago, and it all
worked fine on Cygwin.....

    I'm not familiar with this crappy os, but since version 8.0 you don't
    need cygwin for postgresql. There are a native windoze installer, and it
    runs native on windoze, including psql.

    If you are running 8.2 native version why are you running psql through
    cygwin?

    Use strace and see where it stops. If that doesn't help, use gdb.
