Well, this is a novice list, so I hope no one will find me too pitiful to answer.
Although I have used Postgres before, some years ago, I had never installed it (maybe I still
haven't). I have installed version 9.0 by RPM, on an RHEL 4 box. I can start the server,
but there are two problems:
1. logged in as user "postgres", I cannot connect to the database server without first issuing
(every time) the command: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/pgsql/lib"
This is annoying.
2. once connected to the cluster, I cannot create a database. There is no error message,
and nothing is logged. I am using the command "createdb graves". Nothing happens.
\l displays the databases (postgres, template0, template1).
Can someone point me in the right direction?
