Hi All,

I just installed RedHat 8.0 on a system.  I receive a failure status when I
try to start the postrgresql server by doing the following command as root:

/etc/init.d/postgresql start

It is failing because there is no PG_VERSION file at /var/lib/pgsql/data.
In the data directory, there is only one file:  pg_hba.conf.

What can't I start the postgresql server?  I was able to start the server
this way in RedHat 7.1.

Thanks!
Rebecca
