What I'm seeing now is that the unaccent regression tests when run under make check-world abort with FATAL: postmaster became multithreaded during startup HINT: Set the LC_ALL environment variable to a valid locale. My locale settings for this purpose are LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL= The environment variable LANG is set, all the other ones are not set. I could presumably set LC_ALL, but then I lose the ability to set different locales for different categories. Running LC_ALL=$LANG make -C contrib/unaccent check doesn't fix it; I get the same error. The behavior is also a bit strange. The step ============== starting postmaster ============== hangs for one minute before failing. This probably has nothing to do with your change, but maybe pg_regress could detect postmaster startup failures better. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
