after starting the postmaster:
pg_ctl -o "-o -F -B 3000 -S -N2 -ps -pn" start
postmaster successfully started

so the postmaster is started right? but I keep on getting the following
createdb test1
psql: connectDBStart() -- connect() failed: No such file or directory
        Is the postmaster running locally
        and accepting connections on Unix socket '/tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432'?
createdb: database creation failed
any ideas why it says the system is started but I still can't connect?  I've
removed /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432 and tried again but still had the same result.
any help would be appreciated.
thanks
andy
