Hello,

I'm having problem with the configuration of postgresql. Can anybody 
help me, please?

I did do the followings steps as explained in the section "16.2. 
Creating a Database Cluster" of the "PostgreSQL 7.4.7 Documentation":

"root# mkdir /usr/local/pgsql/data
root# chown postgres /usr/local/pgsql/data
root# su postgres
postgres$ initdb -D /usr/local/pgsql/data"

then shows:

"fixing permissions on existing directory /usr/local/pgsql/data... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/base... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/global... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_xlog... ok
creating directory /usr/local/pgsql/data/pg_clog... ok
selecting default max_connections... 10
selecting default shared_buffers... 50
creating configuration files... ok
creating template1 database in /usr/local/pgsql/data/base/1...
initdb: failed"

the file /var/log/messages shows:
