Hi, 

I am trying to get Postgres 7.02 setup on my alpha.  The build seems to go
okay but the initdb seems to be erroring out.
I have applied the patch: postgresql-7.0-alpha.patch.gz
and I did the ./configure --with-template=linux_alpha
But I still seem to get the error below.   Is there something else that I
might have missed to get postgres to work?
Thank you
This database system will be initialized with username "postgres".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.
