Unhappy postgreSQL + SuSE 9.3???

Hi all,

Am just installing SuSE 9.3, but cannot find postgreSQL. So, am installing the postgreSQL-8.01. But it cannot load itself...
Anybody can tell how to auto-load postgreSQL??

It is normally started by a shell script called postgresql, which needs to be in /etc/init.d - it may well be there already. If not it should be included in whatever you installed it from. It starts with a comment that it is the init script for starting up the PostgreSQL server.

You then need the following symbolic links to it (at any rate this is how it is on Red Hat):

K36postgresql from

S64postgresql from

The names of the links are not important, but they must start with K or S followed by 2 numerics. S(tart) runs on startup, K(ill) on shutdown.
