Description dmsand2 1999-06-17 21:01:48 UTC
because the postgresql-data is not installed, linuxconf
complains when you try to apply the changes (i.e., add
a new user).  I get the following message when I view the

Starting postgresql service: /usr/bin/postmaster does not
find the
database system.  Expected to find it in the PGDATA
"/var/lib/pgsql", but unable to open file with pathname

No data directory -- can't proceed.
postmaster []

Those messages are only being reported via linuxconf, they do not
originate with linuxconf.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-12 15:44:59 UTC
I believe this problem is fixed by starting postgresql differently in
postgresql-6.5.2 and later.
