Does the '/var/run/postgresql' directory exist and is it writeable by the
postgres user?  If it is not, I would say it's a bug for the packager of
this install of postgres.  Typically, postgres puts its lock / sockets in
'/tmp'.  You say linux, but don't say which linux, by your version string
(9.10) I'm guessing that this is ubuntu?
