Is this the same user that is running the postgresql service?
check /etc/init.d/postgresql to see what username the service is being
started as (usually postgres or pgsql) This user should be the only one
that can access the data dir (apart from root)
Bad data dir permissions will prevent postgresql from starting.

Is postgres already running? are you running the postgresql restart as root?
In your data dir you should find serverlog that should give more info -
also try system or console logs
