This is an example of the problem.

I went to http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/ and started 
looking at everything until  /tutorial-createdb.html.  Where it states 
createdb.

I get as a (system user)donn(at)m1l-suse:~> createdb mydb
createdb: could not connect to database postgres: FATAL:  Ident 
authentication failed for user "donn"

The attached file show postmaster is working.  I assume this is a 
security/ issue with a lack of password.  Or maybe a /etc/groups problem
