Raghu Ram,
 
Thanks for responding. This link already seems to exist:
 
# ln -s /lib/libreadline.so.5 /lib/libedit.so.2 
ln: creating symbolic link `/lib/libedit.so.2': File exists 
 
 
Regards,
Harsha

	This is a readline problem --- it's missing some underlying

This is library missing error and you have to soft link with
libedit.so.2. use below command to soft link with library.

ln -s /lib/libreadline.so.5 /lib/libedit.so.2 


Run the psql  as a postgres user,like
psql -d <database name> -p <port> -U <username>

Thanks & Regards,
Raghu Ram
