Have now also tried:
downloading 8.2.2 and compiling it - no luck when running initdb (same
rerunning configure with and without --with-includes=/mingw/include --
with-libraries=/mingw/lib (always running --without-zlib) - same error
I have been searching newsgroups, archives, etc. in hope someone has
seen this. No luck there and no responses yet so I am including
hackers, I hope this is ok but am close to throwing in the towel (have
been throught the windows FAQ too).
I am a newcomer to PG development and wondering if there is light not
too far in the distance or if I can expect to wade through a lot more
of these problems before writing a line of code. I was also hoping to
use MSVC++ but first things first, I would settle for a build under
msys/mingw that I can launch.
Windows does seem like the ugly stepchild for PG, would I be
significantly better off under Mac OS X (have it)? Other Unix (would
have to buy it)?
Thanks again for any help...
