Description borgia 1998-12-26 23:11:11 UTC
This did not happen with 6.3.2-4, but happens with
6.3.2-10; no changes in between

/etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql start
Starting postgresql service: bash: /root/.bashrc: Permission
postmaster [11059]

Comment 1 borgia 1998-12-28 06:37:59 UTC
found a solution: you need "su -l -c" instead of "su -c" in the
startup script

Comment 2 Jay Turner 1998-12-31 17:05:59 UTC
I have verified that this bug is true in the test lab. It does
generate the error as reported by the user but the postmaster service
is still started.

Adding a - or -l to the /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql script alleviates
the error message.

Fixed in the source rpm available from rawhide
