I'm experiencing an unusual situation on a recently reprovisioned
It's a Debian server (testing/unstable) running a 184.108.40.206 kernel.
postgres 8.0.4 was built from source. I'm using a slightly modified
version of the tarball sample init script that includes a function to
start pg_autovacuum automatically.
When I restart, everything seems to come up fine with the exception
that postmaster starts in a state such that it doesn't seem to be
accepting connections (either over UNIX or TCP/IP). As best I can
tell, it is using the init script to start postgres because
pg_autovacuum tries to start, too, and dies shortly after the box
comes up because it, too, cannot connect to postgres.
The very odd thing is that if I use this same init script manually
once the box is up to stop/start postgres, everything comes up roses.
So: is there anything unusual that could happen in terms of order of
operations or pathing during the boot process that I am overlooking?
Also, is there any way to get more status out of a postmaster if one
cannot connect to it? I am able to run pg_ctl status and
pg_controldata, both of which return normally.
