I'm trying to install and init 8.2.1 on a FreeBSD 6.2 server. It used to run
8.1.4 no problem. I uninstalled 8.1, renamed /usr/local/pgsql in case I
ever need it (I'm not really bothered about preserving the data) and built
8.2.1 - all fine.
But when I try to initdb:
root(at)cheddar> su -l pgsql
\u(at)cheddar> /usr/local/bin/initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -E UNICODE
initdb: file "/usr/local/share/postgresql/postgres.bki" does not exist
This means you have a corrupted installation or identified
the wrong directory with the invocation option -L.
Tried adding " -L /usr/local/share/postgresql/" (and removing -E) but no
The .../share/postgresql/ files do exist. Not sure why this is happening
now, it's never happened before. I've got a horrible feeling it's something
embarrassingly simple but I'm stumped. And clues?
