Need more info. How are your starting up? What options?  Connecting from
another machine?

The log you sent says that the system shutdown, started and then shut down
again.  According to the log the system is not running at all after Thu Dec
21 16:47:28 2000.

I am getting a strange error from psql:

psql: connectDBStart() -- connect() failed: Connection refused
	Is the postmaster running at 'localhost'
	and accepting connections on Unix socket '5432'?

Yes, the postmaster is running. I can run psql -l and get a list of my
databases just fine.

This is from the log file:

Server process (pid 18539) exited with status 11 at Thu Dec 21 16:45:54 2000

Which I hope will shed some light on the problem.

I have not only restarted my postgresql service, I have rebooted the
machine just to make sure. And ruined my previously stellar uptime. :-)
