I checked pg_config's output, in my redhat build, syslog is already enabled.
So that clears some of my doubt.
This is how I started my postmaster.
/usr/bin/pg_ctl -D $PGDATA -l /var/log/pgsql -p /usr/bin/postmaster start >
I am trying my best to force the postmaster to write to the /var/log/pgsql
file. But it didn't seem to work at all. All there in /var/log/pgsql is a
oneline "postmaster successfully started". I checked the manpages, and all
they say about log is use -l switch (which I used).
Can you provide a little more hints?
