FATAL: shmat(id=117964 8) failed: Invalid argument


creating template1 database in /var/pgsql/data1/base/1... DEBUG:
invoking IpcMemoryCreate (size=1081344)
FATAL: shmat(id=117964 8) failed: Invalid argument

What's the problem why is shmat passed a wrong id?

I temporarily need Postgres running on Windows98
just to write a client app and I'm stuck at this point.
The same problem has been posted on the cygwin list
but there's no solution so far.
I've got a recent cygwin and tried cygwin postgres 7.4.2-1 and 7.4.3-1
Do I need to tweak the configuration file for cygserver?
I guess the problem is on the cygwin's side
but got no clue how to tackle it.

Help greatly appreciated.



Running in debug mode.

The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "admin".
This user must also own the server process.

I am trying to obtain more debugging information for an issue I reported (ref. Bug #37185 <http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=37185&edit=2>).

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
