I assume you have just installed this on a server or machine. Have you ran initdb yet? This program creates the database structure for PostgeSQL

Thanks for your reply, I've already run initdb.
This was a development database, being used for different projects. Today, I used the postgresql in /etc/init.d to stop it. Normally, I use...
to stop and
kill -INT `head -1 /var/lib/pgsql/data/postmaster.pid`
When I wanted to restart I got the FATAL error. (logged in previous post). After this, I got the error listed in this post.
postmaster -i -D /var/lib/pgsql/data > logfile 2>&1 &
It seems that pg_control file has become corrupt...???
Well, had to create another database and restore from backup.
Still, I'm curious about what caused this problem.
