This second mail is to tell you that I have tried a second installation
with new paths and permissions and postgresql 7.0.2 is running happy in my
Ultra 10 under Solaris 2.6.

I am sorry to have bothered you with a problem for sure dealing with
permissions or configuration.

I hope I will send you more interesting questions in the future.

Thanks anyway and congratulations again for your nice job!
