Hello,

I've been a mysql user for about 2 years and I decided to try Postgre
SQL out.

I have the following problem that I'm trying to figure out:

- in mysql as user root I can connect to any databases not owned by
myself and I can list the tables they contain
- in postgre I have created another database owned by user "bbstatus"
    If I login with user bbstatus to database bbstatus then I can do a
"\dt" and show the tables it contains but if I login with user postgres
which is a superuser and I try a "\dt" I get no results.

/usr/local/pgsql/bin/psql -U bbstatus bbstatus

No relations found.




Isn't the postgres user the same as the root user from mysql ?
I mean there must be a user that has enough rights by default to list
tables in any databases ( I don't like granting myself right for every
database someone creates)
