When running initdb under gdb, you step over the PG_CMD_OPEN;. At that point the backend is started, but hasn't done anything yet, so you can attach to it. The backend stays until the next PG_CMD_CLOSE; As someone pointed out, sleep works also. > The program "postgres" is needed by initdb but was not found in the > same directory as > "j:/postgres/src/test/regress/./tmp_check/install/postgres/bin/initdb". No idea about that, the binary *should* be there... Have a nice day, -- Martijn van Oosterhout <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://svana.org/kleptog/ > From each according to his ability.
