I installed Postgres 6.5 from RPM on Mandrake 6.0.  After moving the files
around, I finally got initdb to work.  Now, for the life of me I can't seem to
get Postmaster to startup.  I am trying to start it as user Postgres with the
following command:

postmaster -D/usr/lib/pgsql/data -i

From the documentation that should work.  When I try to execute that it gives a
blank line on the terminal screen and sets there forever.  The task list says
Postmaster is running, but the terminal is locked unless I do a control z.  And
I can't connect to it from another terminal.

Any thoughts.

Thanks.

Bill
