At work site my company uses ubuntu and there, the installation was flawless.
but at home I use openSUSE 11.2, I want to install the same on my home PC also.
so I tried to do so with "install software" option from the "start" menu, which started YasT2. from where I downloaded the packages and installed. [ I doubt I have not done this work correctly ]. And hence lastly I goggled and found something relevant and useful at this page :
the error said :
postmaster cannot access the server configuration file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf": Permission denied
when executed as a root user, it said :
FATAL: lock file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/postmaster.pid" already exists HINT: Is another postmaster (PID 19581) running in data directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data"?
and when , switched to postgres 'user' it told :
postgres@linux-n21j:/home/aarsh> /usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_ctl -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -l logfile start
pg_ctl: another postmaster may be running; trying to start postmaster anyway
sh: logfile: Permission denied
pg_ctl: could not start postmaster
Examine the log output.
Additionally, I can't still see the entry of postgres in my main menu ???
postmaster is the database server and runs in the background. Typically you would configure postmaster as a service to start at boot time. Once it is started all transctions are accomplished using a client.
The advantage with installing using the distribution's repository is that everything is automatically configured for you.
