postgresql on SuSe 7.2

it seems i installed postgres correctly using the setup tool YaST. only i can't login. if i try as 'su - postgres' it asks me for a paasword i don't know. 'adduser' is not understood. somewhere i read the default user of psql be the linux user with his password. can i still believe that? i guess i'm far from solutions. i love mysql. does anybody have answers or knows a howto? i guess it's a SuSE specific thing. won't help me. many thanks in advance

PostgreSQl has the command:


available at the command line. You can also login as root and then:

su postgres

to create new users using SQL commands. You will need to type:


at the command line to open up the postgres client in order to enter your SQL commands.

There are a couple of recent books on PostgreSQL that do an excellent job of explaining how to install and administer your database. I just finished reading PostgreSQL this past week, and I highly recommend it. The book assumes that you know nothing about databases and walks you from the simple concepts to the most complex.
