PostgreSQL setup


Hi all:
OS: RHEL 3.0

I install the all the packets related to PostgreSQL using "Add/Remove Application" provided by the X-utilities. However when i types psql (as root)at the promt, i got:

psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
Is the server running locally and accepting
connections on Unix domain socket "/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432"?

So how can i fix that ?

Thanks

DT

sounds like the postgres service isn't actually running.
