Dear PostgreSQL people,

I'm baffled at this: \d (and friends) won't give me the definition of a
table, view, function, etc:

$ initdb /var/lib/pgsql
$ psql template1
Welcome to psql, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.
template1=# \dS
          List of relations
      Name      |  Type   |  Owner
 pg_aggregate   | table   | postgres
 pg_am          | table   | postgres
 pg_amop        | table   | postgres
 pg_amproc      | table   | postgres
template1=# \d pg_am
ERROR:  getattproperties: no attribute tuple 1259 -2
template1=# create table test (id int, val int);
template1=# \dt
    List of relations
 Name | Type  |  Owner
 test | table | mgiovann
(1 row)

template1=# \d test
ERROR:  getattproperties: no attribute tuple 1259 -2
template1=# \da
ERROR:  getattproperties: no attribute tuple 1247 -2
template1=# \dd
ERROR:  get_attdisbursion: no attribute tuple 16932 -2
template1=# \q

The system I'm using is a fresh installation of the 7.0.2-2.ppc.rpm's on
an MkLinux DR3 running on a PowerMac 8100/80. More specifically:

* No exported shell variables were set, the location of pgsql files
(bin, lib, database) and directories is exactly as the distribution
expects: /var/lib/pgsql

* No command line options were set, a simple "postmaster -D
/var/lib/pgsql" command was issued.

* Installation was, basically, "rpm -i postgresql*"

* "createuser mgiovann" was executed, with create database/user permissions.

* Version is:
	PostgreSQL 7.0.2 on powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc 2.95.2

* I've installed from the PPC RPM's, version 7.0.2-2 (found in as of today).

* Platform info:
	PowerMac 8100/80, PowerPC 601/80MHz/32MB RAM

Please note, I *did not* compile PostgreSQL myself.

I've tried grepping the documentation for something along the lines of
"getattproperties", or "\d", but I could find nothing relevant to my
problem. I sincerely hope it's not something stupid I did, the last
thing I'd want is to waste your time. If that's the case, please accept
my apologies in advance.

Thank you, and best regards,
