We have a more general solution from someone at uunet. I will try to
merge it into the current cvs tree before beta starts. If you want to
try it, I can send it over.
> I created a patch for the postgres/postmaster program so that I could

> PostgreSQL to work under the FreeVSD project (http://www.freevsd.org).
> The behaviour is to specify argument -I IP_Address as part of the
> options. I just modified the call to StreamServerPort to take the IP
> Address instead of the hostName. I default the IP Address to "0.0.0.0"
> which causes the default behaviour to occurr if you don't specify the -I
> option. In StreamServerPort I do some checking and then use
> gethostbyname to give me the correct structure for the IP Address and
> then set the correct values. This code is currently only allocating 17
> char's for the IP Address, so if anyone wants to specify a host name
> they should change it to a longer value, etc.
> I also modified the reset_shared function to add the current pid to the
> calculation for ipc_key so that we have uniqueness even when using the
> same port.
> I am attaching the patch just for this feature. If anyone is interested
> in the work I did to get the FreeVSD project to automatically support
> PostgreSQL, e-mail me and I'll send you the patches.
