Hi all,

I've got a postgres 7.3.4 database. and somehow the pg_control file got corrupted
when the machine ran  out of space, and someone ran pg_resetxlog -f.
So basically the database starts up, but I can only see template1 and template0.

Is there a way to link in the data that is in the "base" directory so that postgres sees
that database again?

Kind Regards
