Try adding "-U postgres" to connect as the correct user.

Greetings,
  I was just trying to get a live backup of my database and had the
following error: 

uselton]# pg_dumpall   > /tmp/osp5_pgsql.dump
Password: 
pg_dumpall: could not connect to database "template1": FATAL:  Password
authentication failed for user "root"

If it really is asking for the 'root' password I am certainly giving it
correctly.  I am root as I issue the command as well.  I've tried a few
other guesses at what it might _really_ be wanting (including using an
explicit '-h host -p port'), but with no better luck.  Any hints would
be most appreciated.
Cheers,
Andrew
