Running 7.4.2 on Solaris 8 (binaries were built on
a different Solaris 8 box).
I keep getting the following message when trying to
connect to server:
FATAL: missing or erroneous pg_hba.conf file
HINT: see server log for details.
Server log contains message:

The only change I've made was to postgresql.conf to
change "tcpip_socket = true". I have not modified

need to get it resolved. Interestingly the same 7.4.1
binary running on a different machine did not exhibit
the problem. Could it be a Solaris patch level
thanks in advance,
