psql: FATAL 1:  cannot open /usr/local/pgsql/data/global/pg_database: No such file or directory

and it's true..

% ls /usr/local/pgsql/data/global
1260        1261        1262        1264        1269        17127       17130       pg_control

source from Jan  3 15:59 GMT

configure  --enable-locale --enable-recode --enable-debug --enable-cassert --with-CXX

all but geometry (rounding errors) pass gmake runcheck

PGLIB=/usr/local/pgsql/lib
PGDATA=/usr/local/pgsql/data
PGDATESTYLE=European
LC_ALL=en_GB.ISO8859-1

then did the initdb

This database system will be initialized with username "postgres".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.

Success. You can now start the database server using:

        /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data
or
        /usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_ctl -D /usr/local/pgsql/data start


Any ideas?

Cheers,

Patrick
