I'm a bit of a noob with PostgreSQL and I hope this is the right list to ask this question...
When postgresql loads there is and error message:
postgres(at)XXXXX:~$ /etc/init.d/postgresql-7.4 start
chmod: changing permissions of `/var/run/postgresql': Operation not permitted
* Starting PostgreSQL 7.4 database server:main
Error: Could not change user id [fail]
The error message in start-up script /usr/share/postgresql-common/PgCommon.pm
Reading the script suggests that the user to be a member of the "shadow" group, which is now done.
However, postgresql is still not starting and produces the same errors:
Are there special privileges that the "shadow" group has?
What should also be done to getting postgresql working again?
