This does not belong to pgsql-bugs.

I have a feeling that your previous version of postgres is still running.
You should have stopped that daemon before doing 'rm -rf'. attaching/pasting
your pgstartup.log would also help.

For now, kill your current postgres processes, and then try to start again.

Best regards,
