can't install PL\PgSQL language

hey folks,

here is the problem: i tried to run an sql script against my PostgreSQL database and i get this error:

 lvassilev@CM12228989 ~/cygwin
$ psql -d mydbname -h -U lvassilev < test.sql
ERROR:  language "plpgsql" does not exist
HINT:  You need to use "createlang" to load the language into the database.

So i am guessing i need to install the "plpgsql" language in my PostgreSQL db. so i do this:

lvassilev@CM12228989 ~/cygwin
$ createlang plpgsql -d mydbname -h -U lvassilev
createlang: language installation failed: ERROR:  permission denied for language

i guess that means i don't have permission to do this. I am not a superuser on this database, i just log in to it remotely as a regular user. Does that mean i need to ask my DBA to do it for me or what?

i am logging to PostgreSQL through CygWin command prompt on a Windows XP professional machine.

thanks much.

Yup you need to be superuser for that database.
