Description carenas 1999-09-21 00:13:05 UTC
template database should be created if there is no data.

%post server
if [ ! -d /var/lib/pgsql/data ];
  su -c "initdb --pglib=/usr/lib/pgsql
--pgdata=/var/lib/pgsql" postgres 2>&1

will be all what is needed for keeping the init error away

Fixed (by creating/converting database when starting postmaster) in
postgres-6.5.1-0.8 and later.
