Well, ipc-daemon does not work for me as an NT service. (on Win2K)
It looks as if it started up fine, but instead it just silently eats up
memory and CPU power. However it seems to start correctly when using the
'classic' way.

But my problem is with initdb failing to start. it says:
zsolt@ZSOLT:~ $ initdb
bash: /usr/bin/initdb: No such file or directory
zsolt@ZSOLT:~ $

I wondered if this happens because I don't have all the cygwin packages
installed, but only a few of them.

And when I tried to connect with psql to a PG6.5 database running on a
linux box, and it seemed to work, but I could not get the tables listing,
and none of the SELECT queries returned any rows:

zsolt=# \d
zsolt=# \d logtable
ERROR: No such function 'format_type' with the specified attributes
zsolt=# select * from logtable;
zsolt=#


Now what causes THAT?
(I have used PG on linux for a long time, but this is the first time
I tried to run it on NT / Win2K)

TIA,
Zsolt Tulassay

    answering myself, it was just my stupidness.
    I had no /bin/sh on cygwin so initdb couldn't even start
    (I didn't even know before that initdb is a shell script...)

    anyway, the other two questions still remain a mystery for me
