   select AddGeometryColumn('', 'gtest', 'geom', -1, 'LINESTRING', 2);

I got this error:

"unknown", integer) does not exist
SQL state: 42883
Hint: No function matches the given name and argument types. You may need to

I'm running Postgres 8.2 with PostGIS enabled on Windows XP.

Thank you for any helping.

Best Regards,
