Severity		: serious

Summary: Cannot initdb

System Configuration
--------------------
  Operating System   : Linux RedHat 5.2

  PostgreSQL version : 6.4.2

  Compiler used      : GNU gcc and g++

Hardware:
---------
Linux 2.0.36 #1 Tue Oct 13 22:17:11 EDT 1998 i586 unknown

Versions of other tools:
------------------------
flex 2.5.4, GNU Make version 3.76.1,
gcc 2.7.2.3, g++ egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release)
all of which come with RedHat 5.2

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem Description:
--------------------
I type initdb following all directions at http://research.iphil.net/postgresql/docs/admin/c0302.htm
in directory /usr/local/pgsql.  I get the error: 
Running: postgres -boot -C -F -D/usr/local/pgsql/data -Q template1 < /tmp/create
.1182
ERROR:  pg_atoi: error in "template1": can't parse "template1"
ERROR:  pg_atoi: error in "template1": can't parse "template1"
initdb: could not log template database                        
I haven't touched the template.  No make or compile errors, however, 
I wasn't asked about the template during ./configure
I even tried ./configure --with-template=linux_i386
What could be wrong?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Test Case:
----------
try to do this on Linux RedHat 5.2 on AMD Pentium II-350
by untarring, and following directions from given place,
with above mentioned version of tools.  


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution:
---------
Have no idea that's why I am asking....I would love to
use your database program...if I can't get it up, I
have to use Microsoft Access on NT.  Please save me from this.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for more details.
