postgresql initdb failure
firstly, i'd like to apologize if i'm looking for help in the wrong
place, but i have a problem to which i cannot seem to find a solution.
i have the following version: DragonFly 1.1-CURRENT. i need to install
postgresql 7.3. i installed it from the ports tree, there were no
errors. but upon running initdb, i get this error:
. .. [creating directories goes through ok]...
Creating template1 database in /usr/local/pgsql/data/base/1...
IpcSemaphoreCreate: semget(key=1, num=17, 03600) failed: Function not
i thought this might be a semaphore problem, since i got a similar
problem in freebsd, where i put
in my /boot/loader.conf and it works. i tried this here also. is it a
big mistake? the system booted without problems. however, i still get
the same problem. is there anything else i need to be aware of or that i
need to change in order to be able to run initdb?
thank you for your replies.
