I have been trying to get postgresql version 7.2.2 up and running properly on 
a SuSE 8.0 machine.  SuSE comes with a 7.1.* version, which installs into 
/var/lib/pgsql in part, but distributes the include, lib, and other files in 
a number of other directories.  I decided to try simply using the defaults as 
they come in the source file for 7.2.*.  I have tried to edit the conf files 
and other material so that they system works as it did prior to the upgrade, 
however the startup process, invoking "/etc/init.d/postgresql start" now 
results in a "failed" message and the statement that "/usr/local/pgsql cannot 
be opened, it is a directory."  I edited the postgres user profile to match 
the present setup, but this seems to have had no effect.  Can someone suggest 
the basic steps?  Possibly they can point to how to comply with LSB when 
configuring and compiling 7.2.
