Hi Jignesh,

But than I have the problem that I have 2 installations of postgres with default settings on one machine. Is it possible to have two installations with default settings on one machine? 

Do they not interrupt each other with ports or something else....?

Cheers Thomas

I guess what you mean is to remove the "role" postgres so that you can redefine it as a normal user and not remove the binaries that are installed with Postgres as they can be overridden by having right PATH variables

Its easy... Modify /etc/user_attr and remove type=role from the postgres line and modify /etc/passwd to set a home path and change default shell to /bin/sh or /bin/bash and set password for it.. and now you have a normal user..
Is this what you are trying to do?
