The phrase "Cygwin set of DLLs" is more accurate. Actually, the phrase "appropriate subset of Cygwin DLLs" is even better.
! 2. Proceed through the Cygwin install wizard. Choose 'Install from ! Internet', specify a Local Package Directory and choose a mirror ! site that's close to you. Leave everything else as-is.
The default will not work for all users.
Why not? I tried it on a couple of machines... I particularly noted that it now installs cygipc by default..
! 3a. Start ipc-daemon2 for shared memory support. Use ! "net start ipc-daemon2", if you want ipc-daemon2 installed ! as a service; otherwise, use "ipc-daemon2 &". This program ! needs to be running anytime you start the PostgreSQL server ! (postmaster) or initialize a database (initdb).
The above is missing the "ipc-daemon2 --install-as-service" step.
You may want to add installing postmaster as a service too.
Can you please specify the exact set of steps to make this work perfectly - I've never managed it myself... I managed to find your docs on it on the Net once, but I never got it working 100%
! There are some points that are only relevant if you are building Cygwin
! PostgreSQL from source:
! ! 1. Set your path to use the Cygwin bin directory before the Windows
! utilities. Cygwin sort must be used in preference to Windows sort.exe.
Is the above needed during runtime too?
Not on any machine I've installed on. I just left those steps in because they were in the old docs.
Sorry for being picky and not supplying a patch. Nevertheless, I appreciate you updating the README.
That's cool. I would appreciate your tips on installing as a service, however.
