Hi guys,

Does anyone feel like updating the Solaris startup script (was for PG 
7.3.1) on the techdocs site?

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift

Justin,
	The /etc/init.d/postgresql start script under Solaris fails to start
postgres at all because the pgrep matches the init script!

	The lines with "pgrep postgres" return the PID of the init script
because pgrep under solaris without any options will return a simple
grep of ps (effectively), thus matching postgresql of the init script.
What you actually need is "pgrep -x postgres" which will only match
processes with an executable exactly matching "postgres".
	I couldnt actually get the start script to work (on the default pkgadd
install) until I made that change.  Just a heads up if you want to fix it.

	Cheers,
		Adrian
