    How do you do this for a RH system? I'm a newbie having trouble understanding the manual instructions...

    I added this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">code:</font><HR><pre>nohup su -c 'postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data > server.log 2>&1' postgres &
    [/code]
    Won't this do the trick or do I need to do this?:
    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">quote:</font><HR>On RedHat Linux add a file /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgres.init which is based on the example in contrib/linux/. Then make a softlink to this file from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S98postgres.init.
    [/quote]

    In contrib/linux there are two files postgres.init.csh and postgres.init.sh -- which one should I use?

    -Hello
    - Because you are a Linux Redhat user
    - Getting Postgresql to start can be a "pain"

    - Unless your system administrator "inisist"
    you should install PostGresql via
    the postgresql.tar.gz file

    - Then you should install Postgresql using
    RPMS

    -This should fix any problems you have with the /etc/rc.d issue you are having

    -Checkout www.rpmfind.net for the Postgresql RPM.
