=========================================================================

Pete, probably your FreeBSD kernel was built without semaphores.  In
this case, postgresql will start up just fine until you make a request
to it.  The request will try to spawn a backend and communicate with a
semaphore, but not finding semaphores available, it will then shut down.

You can determine if this is your problem by typing:

#> ipcs

This will give you a list of your interprocess communication
facilities.  If you don't see semaphores listed -- you don't have
them.   Apparently, the default in FreeBSD is to build without -- either
you or your sysadmin needs to rebuild the kernel.

You will then just have to replace the kernel -- I forget what it's
called in FreeBSD.  You will NOT have to rebuild the postgresql.

Enjoy!
